In these cases the substitute day occurs, normally the following Monday. In the case of two consecutive holidays (e.g. Christmas Day and Boxing Day) this can be the following Tuesday if the holidays fall on the Saturday and Sunday.
  2. Bank Holidays that never fall on a weekend (e.g Good Friday, Easter Monday) will never have substitute days
