This week, during the night of Saturday 27 to Sunday 28 March, EU citizens will be forced to adapt to yet another seasonal time change. The Socialists and Democrats in the European Parliament call on member states to speed up to respond to citizens’ pleas to end clock changes.

S&D coordinator in the transport committee and Parliament’s rapporteur, Johan Danielsson, said:

“It is important that the EU listens to our citizens’ demands to end the seasonal time changes. 4.6 million people replied to the public consultation on this issue.

“An estimated 20% of the population suffers from physical or mental problems in connection to the time change. These are often vulnerable groups in society, such as children, the elderly and the chronically ill.

“I truly hope that the EU countries will stop dragging their feet and come to the negotiation table to agree on ending clock changes in the EU without further delay.”
