Notice of Motion Pursuant to Rule 4.1.13.1 of the Constitution

To submit the following Notice of Motion by the Leader of the Council:-

 

We as Anglesey County Council show our support to the people of Ukraine by having the flag fly at the Headquarters and having the helping hand of the people of Anglesey ready to provide refuge and support to those in need.

 

To submit the following Notice of Motion by Councillor R Meirion Jones:-

 

 1. That Anglesey Council ask the UK Government in Westminster to devolve to the Welsh Government in Wales to the right and the power to be able to create bank holidays for Wales.

 

2. There is a feeling amongst the people of Wales, whatever their background and tradition, that they wish to celebrate the patron saint of Wales, St David, and that they wish to do this annually on the 1st of March.

 

3. Currently, the right to create bank holidays has been given to the Scottish Government and the Government of Northern Ireland, but not to the Welsh Government. Therefore, the UK Government in Westminster are asked in the same way to devolve – through the Banking and Financial Dealings Act 1971 – the right to create bank holidays, to the Welsh Government.    

 

4. There is a call to establish St David’s Day as a bank holiday in Wales. This has been refused by the UK Government in Westminster on a financial basis but a bank holiday would be a significant boost for Anglesey with its countryside and tourism. Fundamentally, this is not a matter of cost but is a matter of worth and principle. 

 

5. With this, we ask all the people of Anglesey to send a similar message to ours above to the UK Government in Westminster and to copy their local MP into the message. 

Additional documents:
