Abstract/Citation: This short Act seeks to remedy problems that have been experienced in recent years with the fixing of public holidays. At present the Schedule of public holidays can only be changed through passage of amending legislation. This has led to an undesirable lack of flexibility. Under the proposed section 9, the Minister, acting in accordance with the advice of the Cabinet, will have power to amend the Schedule simply by publishing a notice to that effect in the Gazette. The Minister will retain the power under section 6 to vary the days fixed as public holidays on an ad hoc basis. It is envisaged that section 9 will be used to fix public holidays on a general basis, with section 6 being used to make any variations as may be necessary from year to year.
