HC Deb 13 April 1961 vol 638 c473
23. Sir A. Hurd

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is satisfied that the decision to start Summer Time three weeks earlier this year has been generally approved; and, if, after experience of a similar extension this autumn, he will introduce legislation to amend the Summer Time Act, 1925, so as to settle the period permanently.

Mr. Vosper

My right hon. Friend has no reason to doubt that the extension of Summer Time has been generally approved, but he thinks that it is too early to make any announcement about permanent legislation.

Sir A. Hurd

From what my right hon. Friend hears at the Home Office, does he not agree that everyone seems to be very happy with the extension of Sumer Time, and hopes that it will continue?

Mr. Vosper

The correspondence on the issue has certainly ceased, and I take that to be a sign of contentment.
