Call for Brexit bank holiday
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.”
