The States of Jersey (the government of Jersey) has approved, by 25 votes in favour to 17 against, a one-off non-working public holiday (or bank holiday, as it is called in Jersey) on Monday, September 27, 2021, to mark 250 years since corn riots led to legislative reform in Jersey.
The bill, introduced by Montfort Tadier originally had September 28 as a new annual Jersey bank holiday, beginning in 2021. But, this was changed to a one-off occasion, on September 27, 2021, because of opposition from business.
