European Union governments began discussions on Monday to assess whether and when to scrap the twice-yearly clock change, amid doubts the requirement would be dropped in 2019 as the EU executive has proposed, report agencies.
Last month, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker announced a plan to stop changing Europe’s clocks next year, after millions of people responded to a survey by calling for the decades-old practice to end. Norbert Hofer, transport minister of Austria, whose country holds the six-month rotating presidency of the European Union, told reporters on Monday that 2019 was too soon for most.
“We will need to find a compromise as some countries, actually most, have reservations about changing the system in 2019,” he said before a meeting of fellow transport ministers in Graz, Austria, a day after clocks went back an hour for winter.
