HC Deb 22 July 1983 vol 46 c253W
Mr. Dormand

asked the Secretary of State for Transport how much consultation has taken place with representatives of cycling organisations regarding the greater use of canal towpaths by cyclists.

Mrs. Chalker

References to the use of canal towpaths were included in the cycling consultation paper of May 1981 and in the recent consultation paper on shared cyclist and pedestrian facilities. There have been discussions with individual organisations about particular proposals.
