(b) not less than 35 hours in total.
(3) Where, in any week, a claimant does not work on a holiday or, by reason of a holiday, does not work on the working day that immediately precedes or immediately follows that holiday, the claimant shall be regarded as having worked a full working week if, on each of the remaining working days in that week, the claimant works a number of hours at least equal to the number that the claimant would normally work.
