The ‘Minister for Time’ has issued a daylight saving warning
Plenty of Australians have been gearing up to turn forward their clocks by an hour this weekend for daylight saving.
But New South Wales Attorney-General, and self-appointed ‘Minister for Time’, Mark Speakman is warning us to hold off for a week.
The October long weekend usually signals the start of daylight saving time.
But thanks to a rare quirk in this year’s calendar, that isn’t the case.
The summer time period falls on the first Sunday of October, which won’t be until Sunday October 7 this year.
So don’t turn those clocks forward until next weekend!
