    Yes, at 
    It introduces "winter time", but it does not repeal the "Standard 
Time Act, 1968"

    The latter defines "standard time" as GMT + 01 h, but it does not 
make summer time
    illegal. In fact, it states that "summer time" is an allowed 
designation for
    GMT + 01 h during summer. I think that both these Acts are still 
valid, so
    that summer time implies standard time.
