    What the evidence revealed was an increase in the number of deaths on the roads in the mornings and a decrease in the number of deaths on the roads in the evenings, however, the decrease in the number of deaths in the evenings coincided with drink driving legislation which would have had a greater impact. This bill provides no social improvements and no economic improvement, this bill shortens the trading day with the huge global financial hub on New York City but then the Green Party has never been about economic development.
    It increases the trading day with Paris and Frankfurt.

    Two cities whose global influence is tiny compared to the trading dominance London and New York form.

    What?
    The time zone is exactly the same for all of the uk, which is the point of the bill (changing that). Indeed, there will be less vulnerable children.
    I've reread the bill and realised I had scrambled up my thinking due to tiredness, you are indeed right

    He is not right at all, vulnerable children are not protected,, vulnerable children will be killed. The number of hours of sunlight in a day cannot be increased, what happened when this change was trialled in the 60s was there was an increase in deaths in the darker mornings when children were going to school, an increase in energy usage in the morning, and a decrease in globalisation.
