Poll: Should we stop putting the clocks back and forward by an hour each year?

Daylight savings began at 1am today – but is it still necessary?

DO YOU THINK we should call time on changing the time by an hour twice a year?

Last night the clocks went forward by an hour, beginning daylight savings for the year. The clocks will go back again in October for the darker, winter period.

But it’s been suggested by some, including Fine Gael MEP Deirdre Clune, that the practice of putting the clocks back and forward by an hour twice a year is unnecessary.

So what do you think? Should we stop putting the clocks back and forward each year?
