HL Deb 20 December 1995 vol 567 cc160-1WA
Viscount Craigavon

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they have studied the booklet A Blueprint for Bicycle Use, published by the Bicycle Association; and whether they agree with the final section, "Agenda for Action", as far as the roles of the Department of Transport and other government departments are concerned.

Viscount Goschen

The Department of Transport is aware of this report. Many of the ideas in the agenda section reflect action already being taken. Nevertheless, the report identifies many of the issues being covered in generating a national strategy for cycling. Work on that is under way, involving a wide range of interests, including the Bicycle Association themselves and a number of government departments.
