Lithuania will not ask EC to scrap daylight saving time
Monday, March 7, 2016
The Lithuanian government said on Monday it would not ask the European Union to scrap daylight saving time, saying there is no evidence that advancing clocks one hour during summer months has negative impact on people's health or the country's economy.
The Lithuanian Parliament has asked the Government to address the European Commission with the proposal that the European Union member states be allowed to decide themselves whether to follow the daylight saving time. The Government must forward the proposal to the European Commission by 30 April 2016 at the latest.
