Daylight saving time begin and end dates, Sunday 01:00 GMT (1.00am Greenwich Mean Time):
Proposals have been made from time to time about changing the UK's time zone to Central European Time.
However, any changes would need to have full regard to the effect on business and transport links with other countries, on health and safety issues such as road traffic accidents, and on social and community life.
Although there could be some advantages, adoption of Central European Time in the UK would result in later sunrise in winter, affecting particularly outdoor workers and people in the north of England and Scotland.
There are no current plans to change the UK’s time zone and DST rules.
