EXPLANATORY NOTE.

This Order varies the periods of winter time (and consequently summer time) provided for in section 1 (1) (c) of the Standard Time (Amendment) Act, 1971 for the years 1990, 1991 and 1992. The main effect of the Order will be that summer time will begin one week later in 1990 and 1992 and two weeks later in 1991 than provided for in the 1971 Act. 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 (G.M.T.) rather than 2 a.m. This Order gives effect to an EEC Directive [89/47/EEC of 21 December, 1988] concerning summer time in EEC Member States.

This Order shall not come into operation until it has been approved by resolution of each House of the Oireachtas.
