The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) has given evidence to MPs of its target of making the Daylight Saving Bill become law.

Its chief executive Tom Mullarkey has detailed how the group is aiming to make lighter nights a reality to the House of Commons' Procedure Committee, which is analysing the impact of Private Members' Bills.

RoSPA has aimed to provide lighter evenings for decades and supported Rebecca Harris MP's Daylight Savings Bill. It aims to bring the hours forward by two hours raher than one.

"More than 45,000 members of the public signed up to the Lighter Later campaign during the passage of Rebecca Harris’s Bill. Nearly 22,000 individually written emails were sent to MPs urging them to vote in favour. One hundred and forty six of the 160 MPs present at the final stage voted to progress the debate," Mr Mullarkey explained.

He went on to say that the fight for lighter evenings will "go on", adding that he hopes measures will be in place to guarantee the wishes of the public.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801565080-ADNFCR
