EXPLANATORY NOTE.

This Order varies, for the years 1995, 1996 and 1997, the periods of winter time (and consequently summer time) provided for in section 1 (1) (c) of the Standard Time (Amendment) Act, 1971 . Thus, the main effect of the Order will be that summer time will begin one week later in 1995 and two weeks later in 1996 and 1997 and that summer time will end one week earlier in 1995. 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 a European Union Directive [94/21/EC of 30 May 1994] concerning summer time in E.U. Member States.

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