HC Deb 26 April 2004 vol 420 c778W
Mr. Dhanda

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what steps his Department is taking to encourage cycling in(a) the City of Gloucester and (b) the rest of Gloucestershire. [167596]

Mr. McNulty

The Department does not hold information for the City of Gloucester specifically, but by the end of the period 2000–01 to 2005–06, Gloucestershire county council and South Gloucestershire council project that they will have spent £4.5 million of Local Transport Plan funding on cycling schemes.

Both authorities have now drawn up action plans to improve their performance on cycling, building on a review of promotion and provision carried out by the English Regions Cycling Development Team.
