HC Deb 03 August 1961 vol 645 c218W
76. Sir A. Hurd

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether a decision has been taken about the period of Summer Time next year.

Mr. R. A. Butler

We propose to repeat next year the arrangement experimentally adopted for 1961, under which the statutory period of Summer Time was extended by three weeks in both Spring and Autumn. Accordingly we shall in due course seek the approval of Parliament for the draft of an Order in Council providing for Summer Time next year to run from 25th March to 28th October.
