Can I have a summer tyre on my spare if the other wheels are fitted with all-season tyres?

I am thinking of replacing my four summer tyres with all season tyres, for my Skoda Octavia. If I have a puncture is it legal to use my existing spare wheel which has a summer tyre? This wheel is full size, with a Continental tyre on it and the same spec. Or would I have to buy five all season tyres?

Yes, but just as an emergency 'get you home' tyre. All season tyres are directional so a spare all season tyre would only be good for one side of the car.
