Possibly the 24th as the 25th is not a bank holiday - just a public one.

The GOV web site seems to disagree..

Last year, my pension which was due on Monday 26th, was paid on the previous Friday. I expect the Tuesday payments will be paid on Monday 24th, as the banks are open. Hope that helps.

But knowing our government it is probably some form of dumbing down for the masses of people who reside in this country - and no I am not suggesting anyoe is dumb or stupid - but our government seem to think a lot of us are! However I thank you for that link.
