43. Lieut.-Colonel Sir F. HALL
asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that a number of people will not be able to take their annual holidays until after the middle of September; and whether, in view of the desirability of them obtaining as much daylight as possible for their recreation, he will extend the Summer Time Act to the 7th October instead of the 16th September?
§ Mr. BRIDGEMAN
I have no power to do what is suggested. The period of Summer Time is fixed by Statute, and could only be altered by legislation.
