HC Deb 26 April 1934 vol 288 cc1863-4
26. Mr. LECKIE

asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that 24 weeks only are included in summer time this year as compared with 26 last year; and if he will take steps to ensure, by legislation if necessary, that 26 weeks are included next year and in future years, in view of the advantages of the longer period?


The method of fixing the period of summer time was settled by Parliament after full consideration of the interests involved, and I am not prepared to introduce a Bill to amend the existing law.
