Discontinuing seasonal changes of time

Inquiry

The inquiry will examine the implications for the UK of the European Commission's proposal to end seasonal clock changes in the EU. It will consider what preparations the Government should make for the possibility that the Directive is adopted, and what factors should inform its approach. This will include the implications of non-alignment, especially for Northern Ireland, or how the Government should approach the choice between permanent summer-time or winter-time, if it is required or decides to align with the proposal.
