The Prime Minister has suggested that should England win Euro 2024 then to “mark the occasion” there could be an extra Bank Holiday.

Sir Keir Starmer who is in Washington DC for the NATO summit told reporters on Thursday England winning against the Netherlands is “fantastic.”

He said, “I managed to pop out from one of my sessions for just five minutes which is when I saw Harry Kane get the first goal.

“I missed the second one, but it was brilliant. So on we go now, great chance. I’ve always said this team were going to go all the way so I’m really, really pleased and just good luck for Sunday.”

Last year the Prime Minister said there should be a Bank Holiday if the Lionesses win the World Cup.

Sir Keir was asked will there be a day off with England wins Euro 2024, he said, “We should certainly mark the occasion, I don’t want to jinx it. I went to the last Euros final, I don’t want to go through that again.

“I don’t want to jinx anything but we must mark it in some way. But the most important thing is getting it over the line on Sunday.”

Lib Dem leader Sir Ed Davey also said, “The Three Lions are playing their first ever final on foreign soil, and if they bring it home, the Government should bring home a bank holiday to celebrate.

“England deserves the chance to celebrate a once-in-a-generation event. Who knows, we might even get decent weather.”
