I made a number of inquiries via e-mail to recipients in Lord Howe Island, and got this response which seems to me to be authoritative. I don't know if anybody can confirm this further. Certainly there exists a Lord Howe Island Board determining issues on the island.

So the suggestion is to change the start time for Lord Howe Island to equal Sydney and other NSW localities.

Lord Howe Island summer time in 2000/2001 will commence on the same date as the rest of NSW (i.e. 27/8/00). For your information the Lord Howe Island Board (controlling authority for the Island) is seeking the community's views on various options for summer time arrangements on the Island, e.g. advance clocks by 1 full hour instead of only 30 minutes. Dependant on the wishes of residents the Board may approach the NSW government to change the existing arrangements. The starting date for summer time on the Island will however always coincide with the rest of NSW.

I hope this helps.
