Deputy Prime Minister, John Prescott, has backed calls for an extra bank holiday for British workers. Speaking on GMTV's The Sunday Programme over the Easter break, Prescott commented: If you compare our holidays with the rest of Europe, there is an argument for it. We do work far too many hours in this country. Officials at the Department of Trade and Industry, however, have denied that Trade Secretary, Stephen Byers, has given the green light for an extra day's holiday from 2003. The denial came following rumours that Trafalgar Day may become a holiday in England, while St Andrew's Day and St David's Day could become holidays in Scotland and Wales respectively.
