§ 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. 
§ 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.
