§ 6. Colonel DAY
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether any agreement has been reached or discussed between the Governments of Germany, Italy, and Great Britain with reference to summer time; whether a definite agreement has been signed between Great Britain, Belgium, France and Holland regulating the commencement of summer time and the return to normal time; and, if so, the exact dates in each case?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Captain Hacking)
My right hon. Friend has asked me to reply. As regards the first part of the question, the answer is in the negative. As regards the second part, no formal agreement on the subject of summer time has been signed by the countries named but, as a result of an interchange of views between the respec- 356 tive Governments, both France and Belgium have adopted the same starting and terminating dates for Summer Time as those fixed for this country by the Summer Time Act, 1925. In Holland different dates are fixed.
§ Colonel DAY
Can the Under-Secretary say whether any discussions have taken place with any other countries beside those mentioned?
