Cheap UK breaks to be boosted by time change

The government is considering moving the clocks forward by one hour in order to boost British tourism.

A strategy penned by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport is due next week, and it is likely to include plans to switch to British Summer Time +1, which will give people the opportunity to enjoy cheap UK breaks with lighter evenings in the spring and summer.

Furthermore, the May Day bank holiday could be scrapped, with a national holiday during the October half-term school break taking its place.

"It's up to those who want to make the change to make the argument to try to convince people right across the country that it's a good thing," said prime minister David Cameron.

Supporters of the plans claim that the tourism industry could be boosted by millions of pounds, while people turning their lights on later in the day could also have a positive effect on reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

As things stand, the clocks will spring forward by one hour on the morning of Sunday March 27th.
