Petition Action

Introduce Single/Double Summer Time

Additional Information

We are part of Europe therefore we should be on European Time.

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) and other campaigners have made recommendations that British Summer Time be maintained during the winter months, and that a "double summertime" be applied to the current British Summer Time period, putting the UK one hour ahead of GMT during winter, and two hours ahead during summer.

This proposal is referred to as "Single/Double Summer Time" (SDST).

This would mean the UK adopting the same time zone as central European countries such as France, Germany, and Spain (Central European Time and Central European Summer Time).
