This has recently been discussed and analysed in detail:

A majority view (I think!), but far from unanimous, is that if IS/JSA entitlement INCLUDES the Sunday (e.g. 8th Oct 06), then the EP takes effect from the “2nd” Monday (e.g. 16th Oct 06). This interpretation now seems to be accepted by the DWP – see the earlier thread. That would mean the Zebedee/Ward/Lister guide is incorrect.
