Plans for an additional bank holiday for 2021 in an ‘advanced stage’

The government is considering introducing a bank holiday between now and the end of the year as part of the pandemic reward.

Plans are at an advanced stage to have a day to recognize the contribution of frontline workers and remember those who have died from Covid.

No date has been set yet, but it could be in November or between Christmas and the end of the year.

The bank holiday will be a way to acknowledge everyone’s contribution during the pandemic.

This includes all categories of frontline workers, with ministers stressing in recent days that any bonus must be non-divisive.

Other measures for frontline workers, including additional leave or payments, are still being considered.

It is understood that any measures will come from this year’s spending rather than the 2022 budget.
