Legistrative Council E-Petitions

E-petition Number
367
Title
Adopt year-round GMT+10:30 time zone
Grievance
The Petition of certain citizens of the State of Victoria draws to the attention of the Legislative Council that daylight saving should be reconsidered as times have changed and working life is not the 9 to 5 it used to be. People now have complex work hours, and one time zone should be applied throughout the year. This would increase daylight hours during winter and not reduce much from the current arrangement of having daylight saving in summer. There have been studies on how daylight saving affects everyone’s biological clock.
Action
The petitioners therefore request that the Legislative Council call on the Government to consider abolishing daylight saving and permanently move to the GMT+10:30 time zone instead of jumping between the GMT+10:00 and GMT+11:00 time zones.
