Are there any occasions when a Public Holiday in England isn't applicable in Scotland/Wales/NI?
If so, and the BBC One and/or "Channel 3" network schedules have a shorter regional news slot, then presumably Scotland/Wales/NI are forced to have shorter regional news despite it being a normal weekday for them?
Conversely, viewers in the Border Scotland area will get a full 30-minute Lookaround as per usual on e.g. 2nd January and 30th November.
