EU official wants to do away from winter-summer time change

Donald Trump and Jean Claude Junker have managed to agree a ceasefire to their escalating trade war

The decision was made after the majority of surveyed European Union citizens stated that the daylight-savings should be cancelled.

A recent poll of European Union citizens found that 80 per cent support removing daylight saving.

On Friday, the European Commission unveiled the results of a public consultation on the merits of the decades-old practice of capitalising on natural daylight by putting clocks forward by 60 minutes between late March and late October, and then switching back for the winter.

European countries began changing clocks after World War I, shifting times just before summer to save energy.

The time changes on different dates in the U.S., where it starts on the second Sunday in March and ends on the first Sunday in November.

Earlier this year, the European Parliament asked the 28-member bloc to evaluate existing legislation that requires member states to implement daylight savings time.

"We performed a gaze, thousands of 1000's replied and think that in future, summer season time wants to be year-spherical, and that's what will happen", he informed the German broadcaster ZDF.

In July, a meeting between Donald Trump and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, appeared to ratchet down tensions between the U.S. and EU.

Findings "suggest that the effect on the human biorhythm may be more severe than previously thought", the Commission said on its site.

Around 4.6 million people took part in the survey, of which 3 million of these respondents were from Germany alone. He said that if Washington violated the deal reached in July and imposed auto tariffs then "we will also do that".

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker put the summertime question on the political agenda as part of his pledge to be big on the big things while leaving it to Member States to take decisions where they are best placed to do so.

Other supporters of the time-shift include road safety campaigners - who claim extra light in the mornings and additional evening light in summer could help prevent traffic accidents.

For Finland, the plan is also complicated by the fact it shares borders with non-EU states Russia, Belarus and Ukraine, all of which scrapped daylight saving time in 2011.

Opponents argue that some people can not easily adapt to the change and feel it has a short-term negative impact on their health.
