Public Holidays

Volume 506: debated on Friday 26 February 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions what estimate she has made of the cost to her Department of the introduction of an additional public holiday; and if she will make a statement. (315112)

No official estimate has been made of the additional cost to the Department of an additional day's public holiday.

The actual cost would depend in particular on the degree to which work could be re-prioritised or re-scheduled as already happens, for example, at the Christmas and Easter public holidays.
