HC Deb 16 February 1978 vol 944 c292W
Mr. Marten

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement on the detailed proposals of the EEC about the simultaneous application of Summer Time, showing precisely how this will affect the United Kingdom.

Mr. Merlyn Rees

The proposals now under consideration in the EEC are a revised and updated version of a draft directive considered by the Scrutiny Committee in March 1976 (Fifteenth Report from the Select Committee on European Secondary Legislation—24th March 1976). The table below shows how the proposed summer time periods compare with those under the Summer Time Act 1972.

Act 1971 that a Ku-Klux Klan leader, Mr. Wilkinson, should be refused leave to enter if he attempts to come to the United Kingdom. Cases of other members identified at the ports will be referred to the Home Office for consideration in the light of all the circumstances.
