Sir: As a child in Yorkshire I was told many horror stories about the Second World War and one of them was about double summer time and the problems it caused with daylight until midnight.

As a grownup in the North-east I again hear such stories and hope they never become a reality. With long, warm evenings people will stay outdoors, making as much noise as they would earlier in the day, ignoring the problem their neighbour has getting to sleep, ignoring the problems mothers have persuading small children that it really is bedtime when the sun is shining.

Let us have GMT all year round.
