Jersey Add One-Off 2021 Public Holiday

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.

Recall that, last year (2019-09-28, 2019-06-13, 2019-06-05), the list of official 2020 public holidays in Jersey was amended with the declaration of an additional one-off non-working public holiday on Friday, May 8, 2020, to commemorate the 75th anniversary of VE-Day (2019-09-25, 2019-06-13 and 2019-06-05), as was similarly done in the UK (2019-06-08), and Guernsey (2019-07-08, 2019-07-19 and 2019-08-14).
