HC Deb 29 July 1997 vol 299 c199W
Dr. Tony Wright

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what assessment he has made of the effect on traffic accidents and casualties of the adoption of central European time. [9385]

Dr. Strang

The Transport Research Laboratory has estimated that there could be net savings in road casualties in Great Britain were central European time to be adopted. Further work is in progress to refine these estimates and I expect to receive a report shortly.
