"Angered" RoSPA presses Government for more daylight

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) has reacted to Friday's stalling of the Daylight Saving Bill with "anger" after it was "effectively killed by just a few politicians," according to the group.

The Daylight Saving Bill proposes shifting the UK clocks forward by one hour across the year, meaning longer evenings. Currently we use Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) from October to March, and GMT plus one hour for the remainder of the year, called British Summer Time (BST).
