§ Ms. Ruddock
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what further progress has been made in implementing his policy of creating 1,000 miles of cycle lanes in London; and what is his policy regarding the creation of cycle lanes through royal parks.
§ Mr. Chope
Following the seminar hosted by my Department last November, a group of cycling officers from the London boroughs has been set up and continues to meet regularly with the object of co-ordinating the provision of cycle facilities in London.
The London planning advisory committee has endorsed the results of consultation with the boroughs on the 1,000-mile network and that information is being used to produce the maps of the network which will be ready for distribution to boroughs in the autumn.
I am discussing the provision for cyclists in the royal parks with my noble Friend the Minister of State, Department of the Environment.
