Daylight Savings Time

(Communicated by the Interior Ministry Spokesman)

The Ministry of the Interior today (Monday) 30.8.99 announces that Summer Time will end this week on Friday 3.9.99 at 02:00. All clocks are to be moved back one hour to 01:00.

The Summer Time Law requires a six month advance notice to change the dates for Summer Time, therefore Interior Minister Natan Sharansky was not able to alter this year’s changeover, however the Minister intends to extend Summer Time next year.
