From Mr Donald MacNeill

Sir: If Brian Wilson is so keen to have people travel safety in daylight in mid-winter Scotland, why does he have to tamper with the clock to achieve it?

Would it not be simpler for people to start work one hour earlier in the morning? This way, we could all keep in touch with our Continental counterparts while allowing our rural dwellers, human and animal, to work to a natural timescale - all in relative safety.

Mind you, an early start to the day would probably be too much for our MPs.

Yours faithfully,

Donald MacNeill

Livingston,

West Lothian
