Deadline on daylight saving input nears

The public has just one more week to weigh in on the subject of daylight saving time.

The deadline for public consultation on the proposed introduction of daylight saving is midnight on Thursday, October 30.

The Ministry of Commerce is carrying out a public survey on the subject to gauge if residents in Cayman are in favor of adjusting clocks one hour forward during the summer, and back again in the fall.

Earlier this month, Premier Alden McLaughlin said his government supported the introduction of daylight saving. The Chamber of Commerce has also conducted a survey of its members on the subject and 55.7 percent of the 113 respondent members wanted to see daylight saving introduced.

The survey, which according to the ministry takes about three minutes to complete, is available at www.dci.gov.ky under “Introduction of Daylight Savings Time.”
