§ Mr. Michael Spicer
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, pursuant to his answer of 31 October, what representations he has received regarding the adequacy of the regulations and the guidance contained in the highway code in respect of lamps, reflectors and safety clothing for cyclists riding at night; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Norris
In the past 12 months I have replied to seven representations about the adequacy of the Road Vehicle Lighting Regulations 1989. In addition, the Department receives a large number of representations on bicycle safety. Ascertaining how many of these mentioned conspicuity could be done only at disproportionate expense.
