EU Commission proposing to end the practice of adjusting clocks by an hour in spring and autumn



The EU Commission is proposing to end the practice of adjusting clocks by an hour in spring and autumn after a survey found most Europeans opposed it.

 
Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said millions "believe that in future, summer time should be year-round, and that's what will happen".


The Commission's proposal requires support from the 28 national governments and MEPs to become law.


In the EU clocks switch between winter and summer under daylight saving time.


A European Parliament resolution says it is "crucial to maintain a unified EU time regime".
However, the Commission has not yet drafted details of the proposed change.
