HC Deb 11 January 1990 vol 164 cc728-9W
Mr. Vaz

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many police authorities provide a post-coding service for bicycles seven days per week; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. John Patten

The information requested is not held centrally. Police forces encourage owners of bicycles to have them marked with their post code; owners should contact the police crime prevention officer who will be able to advise on local arrangements for marking to be carried out.
