§ 10. Mr. Hunter
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, in order to give the benefit of an hour's extra daylight in the evening, what proposals Her Majesty's present Administration have for extending Summer Time to the end of October this year.
§ Mr. Hunter
Is the hon. and learned Gentleman aware that his reply will give rise to great dissatisfaction, and that the extra hour for three weeks in October would be a great boon to many people? Is the hon. and learned Gentleman aware that last year the then Home Secretary informed me that he would consider this matter in relation to this year?
§ Mr. Crouch
Is my hon. and learned Friend aware that this extra three weeks will be resented very much by farmers and people living in the countryside? They can get up without gutting the clock on an extra hour.
