HC Deb 06 July 1908 vol 191 cc1248-9

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been called to the issue of the Report of the Select Committee on the Daylight Saving Bill; and, if so, whether the Department have expressed any opinion relative thereto.


I have read the Report of this Committee with much interest and with a lively recognition of the advantages which the Bill in question appears at first sight to offer to all classes, and especially to the working classes. I have arranged for the whole subject to be carefully examined by the Board of Trade in consultation with representatives of trade, labour, and transport interests. Pending the result of this examination it is not possible for me to express an opinion.
