Police Reform Bill [Lords]: New Clause 9 — Police powers for local authority employees (10 Jul 2002)

Norman Baker: ...Minister accepted that that will be the case. In fact, he said that it was a good idea that organisations such as Jarvis and those in the railway industry would have the power to issue tickets for cycling on pavements.

David Ford: ...the transport problems of the regions, so it is not much of a tribute to the Minister to say that this is an improvement. I want to welcome several general points, such as the promotion of walking and cycling, which have never been properly recognised here.

There was little in the way of public transport for him to use, so he would have been much better supported in other ways. He came from a poor family...

Business Park (Audenshaw and Denton) (26 Jun 2002)

Mr Andrew Bennett: July, but their importance to Manchester is that they will help to secure major regeneration of the city's east side. On the east side, the emphasis will be on new sports facilities: the stadium, the baths and the cycling facilities. It seems absolutely crazy for North West Water to want credit for helping to make those sports facilities work in the east side of Manchester while...

Transport (London) (26 Jun 2002)

Tom Brake: ...rail services and the franchise negotiations. What is happening to South Central, where is it going in terms of a new franchise, and will it deliver what commuters want? We could have talked about cycling, and it is a pity that the Mayor is scaling down the plans for the cycle network. We could have talked about road safety. I am concerned about the way in which TFL is operating in that...

Public Bill Committee: Police Reform Bill [Lords]: New Clause 10 - Railway safety accreditation scheme (25 Jun 2002)

Norman Baker: The Minister nods. I fail to understand why it is necessary to give people who are accredited under the scheme powers that enable them to deal with cycling on the footway, dog fouling or abandoned vehicles. I hope that we do not have abandoned vehicles on railway lines too often. Several powers seem surplus to requirements, and I would have more sympathy with the proposal if it were limited...
