According to the document by a parliamentary commission, Spain had not been in the "correct time zone" for more than 71 years. The Spanish dictator General Franco moved Spain onto Central European Time to follow Nazi Germany during the Second World War.

The report adds that Spain should be in the same time zone as the UK and Portugal.
