HC Deb 31 January 1996 vol 270 c798W
18. Mr. Nicholas Winterton

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what representations he has received about central European time in respect of the construction and agriculture industries in Scotland. [10805]

Lord James Douglas-Hamilton

Of the letters received in the Scottish Office recently about the proposed change to central European time, two expressed opposition to the measure solely on account of its impact on the agricultural and construction industries; many of the rest alluded, among other things, to the adverse effects on these industries.
