Lighter
Later bill – we got it!

BREAKING: MPs will debate Lighter Later law in December, but there's plenty to do in the meantime...

Lighter Later<br />
graphicIt's happening.

After months of campaigning and lobbying MPs, we can finally confirm that there will be a bill in Parliament backing Lighter Later – our campaign to advance the clocks by one hour for lighter evenings.

Castle Point MP Rebecca Harris' bill would force the government to implement the time change if a full review of the evidence confirms the benefits.

All being well, MPs will debate the plan in early December. This is a huge step forward.

This is an idea whose time has come. 10:10's Lighter Later campaign has proved that there is mass public support for this change.

Similar bills have tried and failed before, but this time there's one really important difference. You.

Past attempts have been all-too-easily ignored but now, for the first time ever, we have the kind of public support that might just tip the balance.

We'll be in touch very soon with some new ways to pile on the pressure. Before then, can you take five minutes to help get more people involved? Here's how:

1. Join our rapid-reaction Facebook group and invite friends

2. Use the tell a friend tool on our website to send them an email

3. Follow us on Twitter (@1010) and spread the word using hashtag #1010

Oh, and if you haven't already done so, don't forget to add your name to the call for lighter evenings at lighterlater.org. Happy campaigning!
