UK Mulls Wales Public Holidays Bill
 
(Posted on Monday, March 7, 2016)

The Private Members' Bill "Devolution (Bank Holidays) (Wales) Bill 2015-16" has been introduced in the UK House of Commons under the "Ten Minute Rule" (SO No 23) by MP Mark Williams, and had its first reading.

The aforementioned bill ("A Bill to devolve to Welsh Ministers responsibility for the determination of specified bank holidays in Wales; and for connected purposes") is expected to have its second reading debate on March 11, 2016.

The "Devolution (Bank Holidays) (Wales) Bill 2015-16", if passed, would allow Wales to set its own public holidays, most notably the March 1st, Saint David's day, which have been often requested over the years (27-Feb-2013, 24-Jun-2007 and 09-Jan-2007).
