I support the view that a Public Holiday on St George's Day would be a great opportunity for all English people regardless of colour or religion to recognise what binds them together instead of concentrating on differences; realise that there is growing demand in England for a day of national celebration; note that Northern Ireland has had a Bank Holiday on St Patrick's Day since 1903, the Scottish Parliament has introduced a voluntary Bank Holiday on St Andrew's Day and the Welsh Assembly agrees that St David's Day should be a holiday; I further note that there is a danger that England could be left behind without an opportunity to celebrate its rich culture and heritage; and support a Public Holiday being held in England on 23 April.
