St Andrew’s Day Bank Holiday (Scotland) Act 2007

Commentary on Sections

Section 1

8.Section 1 amends paragraph 2 of the Schedule to the 1971 Act and stipulates that the St Andrew’s Day bank holiday is to apply on St Andrew’s Day itself (30 November) unless that date falls on either a Saturday or a Sunday. For those years in which St Andrew’s Day does fall at the weekend then the bank holiday will be the immediately following Monday. Thereby if 30 November falls on the Saturday then the bank holiday applies on Monday 2 December, or if 30 November falls on the Sunday then the bank holiday applies on Monday 1 December.
