The Parliamentary Advisory Council for Transport Safety today welcomed the Second Reading given to the Daylight Saving Bill proposed by Rebecca Harris.
Commenting on the Bill’s progress, Robert Gifford, Executive Director of PACTS, said “This is a great day for road safety. A change of time zones to give us more light at the end of the day and reduce crashes and accidents as dusk falls. The Second Reading given to this Bill and the size of the majority in the House of Commons show the breadth of support for this measure.
“I hope that it will now continue its progress through the Parliamentary stages and end up on the Statute Book. Rebecca Harris deserves to be congratulated for her efforts so far.”
