When we had this debate some years ago in this House, I proposed that we should restore the situation to that before the railways came, and that Somerset should go back to its own unique time, because Somerset deserves to be represented in a special way. Do you know, I find that one of the best days of the year is the day the clocks go back? One gets an hour extra in bed, and I have always thought that that is rather welcome.
