Daylight Saving/Lighter Later

ALVA welcomes all proposals to advance time in England and Wales by one hour throughout the year (GMT + 1 hour in winter; GMT + 2 hours in summer).

This measure would have considerable benefits for all industry, including tourism. As the extra hour of accessible daylight would be felt most of all in the spring and autumn months, it would also have a major impact on road safety, energy use and CO2 emissions, whilst also providing the opportunity to extend the tourist season.

It is estimated that this could bring up to £2.5bn additional revenue to tourism.
