St George’s Day could replace May Day bank holiday

The government could scrap the May Day bank holiday and replace it either with a day off on St George’s Day in April or Trafalgar Day in October, according to new tourism proposals.

Moving it to St George’s Day on April 23 would get the tourist season off to an earlier start, while putting it back to the October half term would elongate the tourist season.

The bank holiday around St George’s Day could be a “National Day” holiday while the October one could be either a “UK Day” or a national day to commemorate military victories such as Trafalgar.

The Government will consult on any possible changes and on when to introduce them. There is likely to be no change until 2013.
