Dear friends,

Until 1834, the Bank of England observed about 33 saints' days and religious festivals as holidays, but in that year this was reduced to four: 1 May (May Day), 1 November (All Saints' Day), Good Fridayand Christmas Day.

Most European developed economies has more bank holiday than the United Kingdom.In modern days, the work intensity and efficiency means for vast majority job, the tasks can be completed by 4 working days rather than 5.

The extra bank holidays will allow better work life balance, allow us to better take care of youth and olderly family memnebr, reduce government pressure on social care(already in very bad quality), improve employee’ s working efficiency, allow people have more time to spend money and untimatelly help economy growth.

I do hope our government can consider this change! 

Yours sincerely 

Dr. Siren Tan
