LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. THE DAYLIGHT SAVING BILL. DEAR SIR,-The Home Secretary has appointed Tuesday the 24th instant to receive a deputation headed by the Lord Mayors of London, Liverpool, Car- diff, and York, on the subject of this Bill. Attached is a list of the gentlemen who will form the Deputation. The Daylight Saving movement continues to gain adherents, and the amount of support it can show makes it certain that this or another Government will have to take the matter up. The Bill is supported by the resolutions of 709 City Corporations and Town District Councils, including: London, Manchester, Cardiff, Glasgow, Dublin, Liver- pool, Sheffield, Swansea, Dundee, Belfast, and in the Counties of Bedfordshire, Berkshire, Buckingham- shire, Dorsetshire, Oxfordshire, Sussex, Westmorland and Wiltshire, every town having a population of 10,000 or upwards has passed a resolution in favour of the Bill, and in eight Counties every such Town but one has passed a similar resolution. London is almost unanimous in its support. 25 Councils out of the total 28 have passed a resolution in its favour. Yours faithfully, Sloane Square, WM. WILLETT. London, S.W., 21st March, 1914. P.S.-The 24th March happens to be a peculiarly significant date for the Deputation, because the condi- tions of light are as nearly, as possible the same as they will be on the first morning after the change. For in- stance, Whitaker's Almanack shows that on the 24th March the Sun rises at 5.57 a.m., and on the Third Sunday in April (the date of the proposed change), viz., April 19th the Sun rises at 4.59 a.m., or if a Day- viz., Act had been in force it would rise at 5.59. w w I NAMES OF GENTLEMEN WHO WILL COMPRISE THE DEPUTATION TO THE HOME SECRETARY S— The Lord Mayor of London, The Lord Mayor of Cardiff, The Lord Mayor of York, Association of Chambers of Commerce, Sir John Bingham (represent- ing Sheffield Corporation), R.
