East Yorkshire MP Sir Greg Knight has joined renewed calls to abandon the practice of plunging the nation into darkness in winter.
Sir Greg is one of the sponsors of a new cross party Parliamentary motion calling on the Government to instigate a three year trial of ‘single / double’ summertime. Sir Greg said, “For several months, every year many millions of people will be less happy than they could be as Britain is plunged into darkness by the early afternoon”
Sir Greg has been campaigning for the time zone change for a number of years. He says that it will “greatly help tourism in East Yorkshire and also reduce accidents”.
