Rebecca Harris, Conservative MP for Castle Point, introduced the second reading of the Daylight Saving Bill in the House of Commons on Friday 3 December. The Bill passed with a vote and will now be considered by a Public Bill Committee.
Summary of the Bill
The Bill would require the Government to conduct a cross-departmental analysis of the potential costs and benefits of advancing time by one hour for all, or part of, the year.
If this analysis found that a clock change would benefit the UK, the Bill requires that the Government initiate a trial clock change to determine the full implications.
