The UK's Minister for Tourism, John Penrose, has suggested replacing the early May bank holiday with an October 21 annual non-working public holiday (or bank holiday, as public holidays are called in the UK) commemorating the Battle of Trafalgar.
But, so far the UK's government (previously Labour and now Conservative) has always preferred one-off non-repeat public holidays, usually for Royal events (2010-11-23, 2009-12-27, and 2001-06-19), but not always (1999-06-23).
