Royal holiday for elections

I have written the following to Her Majesty The Queen at Buckingham Palace, London

Madam

On Your Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee, may I request your Majesty grants to your people a Special Day’s Royal Holiday at the time of an election - as a sign of your Majesty’s continued commitment to democracy in the United Kingdom.

I have the honour to remain, Madam, Your Majesty’s most humble and obedient servant.

RICHARD SYMONDS

Lavington Close, Ifield
