That the Parliament commends Fife Council for adjusting the date of its Early May Bank Holiday from 4 to 8 May 2020 as that day will mark 75 years since the victory over Nazi Germany; understands that 13 of the 14 regional NHS boards have also chosen to do this, but notes that NHS Fife has not, and encourages management at NHS Fife to reconsider this decision and follow the other public bodies that have chosen to alter the date of the bank holiday in their diaries.
