Despite one reason for the consultation being recent research results showing
possibly adverse health effects from summer time observance: perhaps they just
can't understand that they will keep "summer time" throughout winter and the
impact on daylight hours, or that is a desire mainly in southern mediterranean
countries, while the northern countries will prefer to stay on "winter time".
