Call for Brexit bank hol­i­day

The Herald - - POLITICS -

A BREXIT bank hol­i­day should be cre­ated to mark the June 23 ref­er­en­dum re­sult, a Tory MP has said.

Peter Bone told min­is­ters that the bank hol­i­day would be­come known as “in­de­pen­dence day”.

MP, speak­ing dur­ing busi­nesses ques­tions in the Com­mons, said: “The coun­try works very hard. We have very few bank hol­i­days rel­a­tive to Europe. It seems to me that we should have one in June, close as pos­si­ble to June 23.

“I am seek­ing a name for that day and I’d ask the leader of the House whether she has any sug­ges­tions or any­one else in this House or across the UK does. The work­ing ti­tle is in­de­pen­dence day.”
