    A parliamentary commission in Spain looks set to approve a report suggesting the country switches its time zone back in line with that of Britain.

    The decision to change the hour was originally taken during World War II so that Franco's Spain could be in step with Nazi Germany.

    Many believe the change has had a dramatic effect on Spanish eating, sleeping and work productivity.
