EXPLANATORY NOTE.

This Order varies the periods of winter time, and consequently summer time, for the year 1989. The effect of the Order will be that standard (summer) time will begin one week later in 1989 than under present law. A minor effect of the Order will be that the time of change from winter time to summer time and vice versa will be 1 a.m. in the morning (GMT) rather than 2 a.m. This Order gives effect to an EEC Directive [88/14/EEC of 22 December, 1987] concerning summer time in EC Member States.

In accordance with subsection (3) of section 1 of the Standard Time (Amendment) Act, 1971 (No. 17 of 1971), the above Order has been approved by resolution of each House of the Oireachtas.
