Wales FM Favors March 1st Public Holiday
 
(Posted on Wednesday, February 27, 2013)

Responding to the Welsh Conservatives' call for a new annual non-working public holiday in Wales on March 1st to commemorate Saint David's Day, the First Minister of Wales announced that he was in favour of seeking the power to declare a public holiday in Wales.

Calls to make March 1st an new annual non-working public holiday in Wales have cropped-up at regular intervals (24-Jun-2007 and 09-Jan-2007).

A decade ago (01-Dec-2006), the similarly-inspired St Andrew's Day Holiday Bill, to make November 30 an official public holiday in Scotland, was approved unanimously by MSPs of the Scottish Parliament.
