Boris Johnson He urged employers to consider giving workers who are experiencing falls furloughs on Monday if England win the European Championship.
England will play Italy in the Euro 2020 final on Sunday at 8pm – the first time the team has entered the final of a major international tournament since the 1966 World Cup.
Wednesday night’s semi-final win over Denmark led to wild celebrations, and a Downing Street spokesman responded to emergency calls bank holiday, including the Parliament website موقع petition With nearly a quarter of a million signatures.
When asked if employers need to be flexible said the speaker: “We want companies that feel they can think about it, if they can, but we understand that it will vary depending on the business and the company.”
On the question of whether there should be a public holiday all day, the spokesperson said: “The prime minister was asked about it and he said it would be a tempting fate and he wanted to see what happens on Sunday; I think that is the right approach.”
The description of the petition reads: “It would be advantageous and reasonable to grant the state a day off the following day if England were to win, in the form of an additional bank holiday on Monday.
“Sundays at 8pm is a tough time for families to plan to stay together at the event – knowing we have an extra day the next day will help tremendously.
Moreover, a historic victory should be celebrated. The winning team is expected to parade the trophy, and the bank holiday would be an ideal time to do so.
“Also, the English naturally want to continue to enjoy winning, giving the retail and entertainment industry a much-needed opportunity to make up for lost revenue.”
