§ Mr. Gordon Wilson
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department (1) what consultations with Scottish organisations will be carried out prior to decision making on the EEC draft directive on harmonisation of summertime, in view of the special problems arising from Scotland's northerly and westerly location in relation to the Central European countries which are members of the EEC;
(2) what steps he will take to oppose the EEC draft directive on harmonisation of summertime in view of the difficulty 31W of applying its proposals to north west Atlantic nations such as Scotland.
§ Dr. Summerskill
The problems which the draft directive presents for the United Kingdom will be discussed with all interested departments, including that of my right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State for Scotland, before we take any final decisions.
