HC Deb 06 February 1969 vol 777 c152W
60. Mrs. Ewing

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what further representations he has received on the progress of the British Standard Time experiment; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Merlyn Rees

My right hon. Friend has received representations against British Standard Time from 30 local authorities and 24 other representative organisations. He has also received letters from about 450 individuals, most of whom were opposed to the experiment. The effects of British Standard Time cannot be finally judged yet. The Government propose to make a comprehensive review in the spring of 1970.
