The States of Jersey has issued an official commentary on the proposition of Deputy S.Y. Mézec of St. Helier for an additional non-working public holiday in Jersey on Friday, May 8, 2015, the second such proposal to compensate the fact that the 70th anniversary of the end of Jersey's WW2 occupation falls on a Saturday this year.
In a similar vein, earlier this year (25-Jan-2015), the Jersey Council of Ministers had confirmed that it would not ask the States of Jersey for an additional non-working public holiday in Jersey on May 11, 2015, to compensate the fact that the 70th anniversary of the end of Jersey's WW2 occupation falls on a Saturday this year.
Recall that, the last time the Jersey annual non-working public holiday for Liberation Day fell on a Saturday, in 2010, a similar call to declare Monday, May 11, 2010, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Jersey, was defeated, despite multiple and last-minute efforts (20-Dec-2009, 03-Feb-2010, 15-Feb-2010, 27-Feb-2010 and 25-Mar-2010).
Guernsey's government has also stated (19-Nov-2014) that it had no plans to declare May 10, 2015, as an additional, one-off non-working public holiday, as was the case 5 years ago (07-Mar-2010) when the day after Liberation Day public holiday, Monday, May 10th, 2010, was declared an additional official public holiday in Guernsey (11-Sep-2009).
