HC Deb 16 July 1969 vol 787 cc100-1W
58. Mr. William Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what conclusion he has now reached, in the light of the accident rates on the roads to children, or in industry, concerning the continuation of the experiment with British Standard Time.

Mr. Ross

The information so far available about accidents on the roads and in industry under British Standard Time is inconclusive and, as announced by my right hon. Friend the Home Secretary on 19th June in reply to Questions by the hon. Members for South Angus (Mr. Bruce-Gardyne) and Londonderry (Mr. Chichester-Clarke), the Government do not propose to come to a decision on the future of the British Standard Time until there has been a full scale review of its effects after the winter of 1969–70.
