Question for written answer E-015529-15
to the Commission
Rule 130
Richard Corbett (S&D)

 Subject:  Revision of daylight saving time
 Answer in writing 

Has the Commission given consideration to revising daylight saving time, and would it be willing to propose having an equal number of days before and after the winter solstice of 21 December?

Does it agree that there are strong arguments for revising daylight saving time?

Health and safety: citizens would have extra daylight in the evening. This would increase the time they have for leisure and to safely return from work.

Economic and environmental: there would, for example, be less need for artificial lighting.
