The EU can make proposals aimed at ending the annual transfer procedure of savings or put hours back and forth for the next year.

The European Commission has proposed to end a six-month changes in 2019 – two years earlier than the previously announced date of 2021.

MEP from Ireland and southern Ireland in the European Parliament working group on twice a year clock change welcomed the proposal, which would allow member States to decide whether they want to maintain a constant summer or winter.

Member States must notify the European Commission about its decision. Then they would not be able to use seasonal clock changes. Member States will have the opportunity to decide what time zone to use in their territories, he said.

“I am pleased that the Commission is moving quickly on this, especially given the discussion last week was the end date of 2021 for change.

“The earlier dates, which we called for, it is better as it puts pressure on us to begin the legislative process once, and hopefully get it completed by early next year or even earlier,” he said.

“The presidency of Austria has declared its readiness to move quickly on this issue and raise it at the next meeting of the Council at the end of the month. This shows a real willingness to push this important legislation.

“The proposal is good as an initial first step, and it will now be up to Parliament and Council to agree a common approach.

“I think that many forthcoming discussions will be focused on a smooth transition to a workable pan-European system. It will bring logistical difficulties for member States in different time zones, so it would be nice to provide some degree of equalization. That is for the forthcoming negotiations.

“It will be of great benefit for EU citizens. A consultation of citizens to carry a negative impact on health, road traffic accidents and increase the use of energy, and so this change will bring important benefits in this area.”
