Government has published a Daylight Saving Time Bill as it pushes ahead with plans to adopt the system of changing clocks with the seasons.
If the bill is passed into law, clocks will go forward by one hour in March, in sync with the United States Daylight Saving Time.
The bill, published in the Cayman Islands Gazette last week, indicates that clocks will go forward on the second Sunday in March every year and go back an hour on the first Sunday in November.
An introduction to the bill states, “It is envisaged that the adoption of daylight saving time will bring several positive changes, including increased sunlight in the evenings, which could facilitate increased outdoor playtime for children, provide longer outdoor time for sports enthusiasts and encourage more family time outdoors in the evening.”
It also suggests there will be some benefit to the financial and tourism industries from being in sync with New York time.
