Don?t forget, clocks forward one hour



DAYLIGHT saving, or daylight robbery, depending on your point of view or time of rising, will see NSW clocks go forward one hour tomorrow morning.

The should-we or shouldn't-we debate has raged since daylight saving time was permanently introduced in 1976, and shows no signs of dying down.

Just yesterday, Prime Minister John Howard said NSW and Victoria should join Tasmania in starting daylight saving a month earlier.

He also believes Queensland should think about introducing daylight saving to the State's south-east corner.

On the against side is a lobby group from western New South Wales who wants the State Government to scrap daylight saving.

The Abolish Daylight Saving Committee says the practice of putting clocks forward an hour each October contributes to health and social problems.

Like it or hate it, daylight saving will start tomorrow at 2am, when residents are reminded to put their clocks forward one hour.

And good news for fans of the practice, or rubbing salt into the wounds of the negators, daylight saving has this year been extended a week to coincide with the Commonwealth Games, meaning clocks won't be put back one hour until April 2.
