Volume 508: debated on Tuesday 6 April 2010

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills what recent consideration the Secretary of State has given to bringing into force the provisions of the Easter Act 1928 which fix the date of Easter; and if he will make a statement. (325707)

The Easter Act 1928 remains on the statute book but the Act requires that before a draft order is laid before Parliament:

"regard shall be had to any opinion officially expressed by any Church or other Christian Body."

There are no plans to implement the provisions of the Act.
