Jeremy Hunt says it is too early in the morning to understand the arithmetic with his new contract proposal.
Nevertheless, 7am-7pm Monday to Friday is currently consider normal working hours for junior doctors.

Unlike Jeremy in this clip, Junior Doctors have to be alert and awake when they start their shifts. Increasing their “normal working hours” won’t help.
