Please recall that just because the TAI and UTC clocks is being 
maintained by BIPM just outside of Paris does not mean the same as being 
legally accepted basis of time within France.

Citing relevant law stating that the time of France shall be UTC + 1h 
for normal time and UTC + 2h for summer time is providing the piece of 
the puzzle that I was asking for.

I have read Swedish and Danish law in this respect, as well as most 
translations of the EC directive on summertime.

It should be noted that I do not assume UTC = GMT.
