50. Mr. Awbery

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what communications he has received from the municipal corporations on the question of the extension of British Summer time; and what was the nature of his reply.

Mr. Vosper

The Association of Municipal Corporations, after consulting its members, informed my right hon. Friend that 78 are in favour of making no change; 36 favour an extension of Summer Time in the autumn; 104 favour an extension in the autumn and spring; 144 would prefer Summer Time to be continued throughout the year; and 43 have expressed no opinion. The Association's letter was acknowledged.
