Consultation description

The Tourism Strategy, published in March 2011, included a commitment to consult about possibly moving the May Day Bank Holiday to a new date at some other point in the year. While the Tourism Strategy set out a number of suggestions there may be other possible dates and “occasions” which deserve active consideration.

This pre-consultation invited suggestions and supporting evidence for alternatives for a new date and occasion to possibly replace the May Day Bank Holiday, as well as allowing respondents to set out the issues that need to be included and considered within the main consultation. 

This pre-consultation will allow us to make the main consultation a comprehensive study of all the issues that are affected by the date and occasion of a bank holiday. It will also allow it to be more focussed, with a limited number of options including an option to retain the current early May bank holiday.
