Tim Fischer on fixing the date of Easter

Calls for Easter to be celebrated on a set date each year have received high-profile support.

In a move that’s set to upset religious Australians, former Deputy Prime Minister Tim Fischer says Good Friday could be held on the first Friday each April.

Mr Fischer, the first resident Australian Ambassador to the Holy See, told Ross and John there’s nothing from a religious context to stop that from happening.

‘The Pope Francis himself … said there are no doctrinal reasons why you can not fix the date of Easter,’ he said.
