HC Deb 01 June 1916 vol 82 c2917

(by Private Notice) asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether, under Order dated 21st instant, officers are instructed, when sending aircraft messages to a certain naval centre, to use Greenwich mean time, indicating this by the letters "G.M.T." after the figures, and to change all messages received from military sources which have to be transmitted to this naval centre into Greenwich mean time; and whether, in view of the complexity of this arrangement, he cannot arrange for the Naval Service, as well as the Military, to comply with the Summer Time Act?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. With regard to second part of the question, it is not expedient, for naval purposes, to make this change.
