Second reading of Daylight Saving Bill

06 December 2010

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.
