European parliament votes to scrap daylight saving time from 2021
http://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/mar/26/european-parliament-votes-to-scrap-daylight-saving-time-from-2021


'The European parliament has voted to scrap the twice-a-year custom of changing the clocks by an hour in spring and autumn by 2021, leaving only national governments to now give their assent.

The change would apply to the UK if it stays in the EU, and also during an extended transition period that is part of Theresa May’s Brexit deal.

Member states would be able to choose whether to remain on “permanent summer” or “permanent winter” time under the draft directive, which passed by 410 votes to 192. Countries that wanted to be permanently on summertime would adjust their clocks for the final time on the last Sunday in March 2021. Those that opt for permanent wintertime would change their clocks for the final time on the last Sunday of October 2021.

It is the latest step in the EU’s harmonisation of daylight saving time first launched in the 1980s in an attempt to prevent divergent approaches from undermining the European single market. Under current EU law, the clocks in the 28 member states move forward together on the last Sunday in March and fall back on the last Sunday in October.

Tory MEPs, who voted against the proposal, reacted angrily to the development, with one accusing the European commission, which has pushed the plan to ditch daylight saving time, of acting like “time lords”.'
