The report examines the implications for the UK of the European Commission's proposal to end seasonal clock changes in the EU. It considers the two alternative scenarios arising for the UK, should the proposal be adopted: non-aligning, and having a varying time difference with EU neighbours; or aligning, and having to adopt either winter-time or summer-time on a permanent basis. While non-alignment could negatively affect businesses and people in Northern Ireland, a permanent time zone could have major implications for other UK citizens, particularly in Scotland and the north of England.
