EU Gets a Step Closer to Scrapping Daylight Saving Time

The European Union is one step closer to getting rid of Daylight Saving Time.

On Tuesday, lawmakers  voted 410 to 192  in favor of scrapping the bi-annual clock change in 2021.  Under current EU law , member countries are required to move their clocks forward together on the last Sunday in March and move them all back on the last Sunday in October.

The use of Daylight Saving Time is often linked to prospective energy savings, but the European Commission notes  those savings are small .

And it says claims that the time switch affects health and road safety are inconclusive.

On top of that, an  EU-wide survey  conducted last year showed a large majority of respondents are in favor of stopping the clock change.

Now that the European Parliament has voted in favor of getting rid of Daylight Saving Time, the next step involves discussing the issue with members of the bloc.
