Betts backing clocks change

Have your say

THE campaign to move the clocks forward by one hour all year round is being backed by a Sheffield MP.

Sheffield South East Labour MP Clive Betts is backing a bill to get the Government to look at benefits of the move.

The Daylight Saving Bill, receiving its Third Reading in the House of Commons today, calls for a comprehensive review of the costs and benefits of putting clocks forward an hour in the UK, resulting in lighter evenings every day.

Mr Betts said: “The arguments in favour of clock change are very strong.

“This one simple low-cost policy could bring wide ranging benefits to the whole of the UK including saving lives on our roads, cutting the fear of crime on dark evenings, and create jobs in leisure and tourism.”
