The version I now see says, "The change will occur at 00:00 (midnight) 
on February 1, when clocks will be set back 1 hour to 23:00 (11:00 pm)." 
This is a bit confusing, because if the change is indeed at 00:00 on 
February 1, the quoted text should have ended in "23:00 (11:00 pm) the 
previous day" to avoid confusion.

Perhaps the official announcement (if one is made and someone can 
provide it) will be less confusing.
