British Summer Time - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

** British Summer Time **

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
For the science fiction novel of this title by Paul Cornell, see British
Summertime (novel).

During *British Summer Time* (*BST*), civil time in the United Kingdom is
advanced one hour forward of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), so that evenings
have more daylight and mornings have less.^[1]^[2]

BST begins at 01:00 GMT on the last Sunday of March and ends at 01:00 GMT
on the last Sunday of October. Since 22 October 1995 the times of
commencement and cessation of daylight saving time across the European
Union have been aligned^[3] – for instance Central European Summer
Time begins and ends on the same Sundays at exactly the same time (that is,
02:00 CET).

In 2014, BST began on 30 March and ends on 26 October.^[4]

*Instigation and early years[edit]*

British Summer Time was first established by the Summer Time Act 1916,
after a campaign by builder William Willett. His original proposal was to
move the clocks forward by 80 minutes, in 20-minute weekly steps on Sundays
in April and by the reverse procedure in September.^[5] In 1916 BST began
on 21 May and ended on 1 October.^[6]

*Periods of deviation[edit]*

In 1940, during the Second World War, the clocks in Britain were not put
back by an hour at the end of Summer Time. In subsequent years, clocks
continued to be advanced by one hour each spring
