A spokesman for Industrial Relations Minister of the Australian State of South Australia, John Rau, has announced that despite last year's amendments to the public holidays in South Australia, there is "no intention to remove Sundays as a public holiday in the immediate future".

Last year (2012-03-22), the South Australian Government had made a deal with independent MPs to ensure passage of amendments to the official legislation governing non-working public holidays in the Australian state of South Australia, to include part-day public holidays on Christmas Eve (December 24) and New Year's Eve (December 31) as well as the removal of Sundays from the definition of what constitutes a non-working public holiday in the Australian state of South Australia.

The aforementioned announcement, however, is in line with the recent official publication of 2013-2015 non-working public holiday in South Australia (2013-02-18).
