HC Deb 27 July 1998 vol 317 c55W
Mr. Robathan

To ask the President of the Board of Trade following the Government's announcement of 20 July on measures to promote cycling in the White Paper, A New Deal for Transport, what plans she has to order the removal of the signs on the railings around her Department which forbid the leaving of bicycles. [51935]

Mr. Nigel Griffiths

Secure racks are provided for all my Department's staff who come to work in the Victoria area by bicycle—some 4 per cent. of them do, I am glad to report.

The prohibition on leaving bicycles outside 1 Victoria Street is in place for security reasons—among which is the proximity of the building to this House.
