Do you back moves to bring the clocks forward by two hours?

LONGER evenings could move a step closer with a government plan to move UK clocks forward an extra hour.

A “tourism strategy” will include a plan to move the clocks in line with most of Europe, bringing lighter evenings but darker mornings.

Tourism chiefs and safety campaigners support the move, but there are fears in Scotland about road accidents.

Ministers want to be satisfied the country backs the plan before giving the go-ahead, according to the BBC.

Last year, Prime Minister David Cameron indicated he was willing to consider a switch.

“The argument will be won when people across the country feel comfortable with the change,” he said in August.

“It’s up to those who want to make the change to make the argument to try to convince people right across the country that it’s a good thing.

“People who like taking part in sporting activity and would like longer days are already quite easy to sway. That’s the key to winning this argument.”
