HC Deb 22 June 1979 vol 968 c728W
Mr. Alton

asked the Minister of Trans-port if he will make a statement on his proposals for improving facilities for cyclists.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

We should like to see cycling made safer and more convenient. Most cycling is on local authority roads and we welcome decisions by local authorities to improve facilities for cyclists. The Department of Transport helps with technical advice and, in addtion to the normal grant arrangements, makes a contribution towards the cost of experimental schemes.
