Pedicabs (London) Bill [Lords]: Clause 11 - Short title (26 Mar 2024)

Simon Lightwood: ...these measures should have been introduced as part of a far wider transport Bill. Elsewhere in transport policy there remains desperate need for major transport reform, particularly on e-bikes and e-scooters, but the Government continue to duck that responsibility and have refused to use this opportunity to bring forward a long-promised and long-delayed transport Bill. I have been...

Income Tax (Charge) (12 Mar 2024)

Yvonne Fovargue: .... That would stop many of the policies that are pushing people into more hardship and debt. This may sound a little strange, but I am looking to introduce a ten-minute rule Bill to regulate e-scooters that use lithium-ion batteries, which will come under the Department for Transport. This is a financial inclusion matter, because it is often the cost of living that causes people to search...

Automated Vehicles Bill [Lords] ( 5 Mar 2024)

Louise Haigh: ...us all sorts of transport legislation over the years that they have failed to make parliamentary time for. This Bill is not his long-promised rail reform. It is not legislation to properly regulate e-scooters, e-bikes or drones, to set minimum standards for taxis, to extend franchising for buses, or to strengthen the powers of the Civil Aviation Authority—legislation that has been...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Pedestrian Areas ( 5 Mar 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: ...provision and environmental impacts. The Department’s guidance for local authorities and operators taking part in trials sets out that appropriate parking provision should be provided to ensure e-scooters do not become obstructive.

Pedicabs (London) Bill [Lords] (28 Feb 2024)

Guy Opperman: ...is to make it easier to bring those things in. Clearly, clause 7 provides a capability for the Secretary of State to bring in such guidance. I endorse the point that has been made about e-bikes and e-scooters: enforcement is the key issue on an ongoing basis. I make the final point that we will debate the Bill in Committee, and I propose to write to all Members who have contributed today...

Business of the House (22 Feb 2024)

Nickie Aiken: E-bikes and e-scooters are becoming increasingly popular as a mode of transport, but I am concerned that last year London Fire Brigade attended 155 e-bike fires—an increase of 78% on 2022—and 28 blazes involving e-scooters. Three people have lost their lives and approximately 60 people have been injured in those fires. Will my right hon. Friend consider a debate in Government time on...

Pavement Parking - Question (21 Feb 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: Again, the noble Lord makes a valid point, which I cannot disagree with. E-scooters are allowed on public roads only as part of the e-scooter rental trials, and private e-scooters can be used only on private land. The use of any e-scooters on the pavement is illegal under current legislation and the Government have no current plans to change this. But at the end of the day, these things have...

Off-road Biking — [Mrs Pauline Latham in the Chair] (20 Feb 2024)

Peter Gibson: ...do not believe that the introduction of a mandatory registration scheme would be the most effective way to tackle dangerous and antisocial use, but it would certainly help. As we see more e-bikes, e-scooters and various other motorised transport, the problem is only going to continue to escalate. The current view is that registration would place a burden and a cost on law-abiding citizens....

Written Answers — Department for Business and Trade: Electric Bicycles and Electric Scooters: Batteries (19 Feb 2024)

Gregory Campbell: To ask the Secretary of State for Business and Trade, how many people have been prosecuted for selling unsafe battery-charged (a) e-bikes and (b) e-scooters in the last 12 months.

Transport: Topical Questions ( 8 Feb 2024)

Barry Sheerman: Has the ministerial team seen the Parliamentary Advisory Council for Transport Safety’s recent report on the growing number of accidents involving e-scooters, and if not, will they look at it? Not only are e-scooters an increasing danger to all our constituents, there is a lack of police follow-up when accidents happen.

Pedicabs (London) Bill [HL] - Third Reading: Motion ( 6 Feb 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: ...my thanks, I will first draw noble Lords’ attention to an update following Report last week. My department published guidance on 1 February relating to the safe use of batteries in e-cycles and e-scooters. This matter has been raised consistently throughout the Bill’s passage through this House. The guidance will raise awareness for owners on how to safely purchase an e-cycle or...

Pedicabs (London) Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 2 (30 Jan 2024)

Lord Moylan: ...the first battery was discovered. Now we have lithium-ion batteries, which appear to be perfectly safe in one’s telephone but not if they are attached to a pedicab. We have a similar problem with e-scooters. On some occasions, the batteries have been known to blow up, which is why they are banned from every part of the London Underground network—platforms and stations as well as...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Electric Scooters: Death and Injuries (23 Jan 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: DfT reports on the number of personal injury road traffic collisions involving e-scooters, in Great Britain, using the STATS19 reporting system. STATS19 data does not allow the precise cause of collisions to be determined so it is not possible to provide figures for injuries or deaths caused by a particular road user type. The table shows the number of reported road casualties for...

Business of the House (18 Jan 2024)

Jessica Morden: There was no transport Bill in the King’s Speech and therefore no opportunity to update legislation relating to e-scooters and e-bikes, and, obviously, we have seen a massive increase in their use. May we have an opportunity, on behalf of constituents who regularly raise with me the antisocial use of e-bikes and e-scooters, to question Ministers on what more they can do to tackle this?

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Electric Scooters: Training (15 Jan 2024)
