Follow this EDM by:


That this House notes the celebrations of Cornwall's patron saint, St Piran, on 5 March each year are growing in scope, support and significance; believes that this is a valuable opportunity for the people of Cornwall to celebrate their unique heritage, language, culture and aspirations; recognises that those who support patron saints' days in other regions and nations in the UK are also seeking official acknowledgement; welcomes the fact that several town and parish councils have already made the day a staff holiday; and calls on the Government to make St Piran's Day a public holiday in Cornwall.
