Spain considers switching time zone to boost economy

Spanish lawmakers on Thursday proposed switching the country to a different time zone, jumping back an hour to make eating and sleeping habits more regular and workers more productive. Spain lies far to the west of Europe, with most of its territory geographically in the same zone as neighbouring Portugal and Britain. But, with the exception of the Canary Islands in the Atlantic, Spain operates in the same time zone as France and Germany, one hour ahead of Greenwich Mean Time in winter and two hours ahead in summer.
