Campaign for Lighter Evenings

Wednesday 02 April 2008, 12:55 PM

The Tourism Alliance supports the Campaign for Lighter Evenings THE PROPOSAL For the UK to undertake a system of Single/Double Summer Time (SDST) for a three year trial period in order to make better use of the hours of daylight that the country receives. This would mean moving the clocks two hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) in the summer (GMT+2) and one hour ahead of GMT in the winter (GMT+1). THE OUTCOME Moving to SDST means that the UK would have lighter evenings all year round. This would provide considerable environmental, road safety, health and leisure advantages which would significantly outweigh the disadvantages of darker mornings.
