HC Deb 24 June 1964 vol 697 c76W
69. Mr. A. Lewis

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware of the danger caused to drivers of motor vehicles by pedal cyclists on derestricted roads; and whether he will introduce regulations to oblige cyclists to use cycle tracks where these are provided.

Mr. Marples

The Highways Code says that if there is an adequate cycle track cyclists should use it. I have no power to make regulations requiring cyclists to use cycle tracks generally. But I am able to make orders for specific roads for which I am the authority, and I am also prepared to consider confirming orders submitted to me by other highway authorities.
