Irene McGugan: ...benefits as well. Why not introduce all children to tennis? It is more accessible, easier to pick up and probably cheaper. Scotland has a great history of success in minority sports such as curling, cycling and judo, but those sports get very little media coverage, little funding and next to no sponsorship. Scots rarely fail to achieve well in them at international level. In ice-skating,...

Respondent in appeals about instructors (2 Nov 2000)

Viscount Falkland: ...enthusiasm for this amendment than I had for the previous one moved by the noble Lord, Lord Rotherwick, and accepted so graciously by the Government.

To an extent, I have been a prime...

Brian Monteith: ...record in the 400 m by five seconds. Other names with which members may be familiar are Janice Lawton, who took the silver in the discus, and Allan Stuart, who took the silver in the 400 m. In cycling, visually impaired Robert Allen and his sighted pilot Andrew Slater took silver in the men's tandem 1 km time trials. I mention those names, but I make it clear that all members of the UK...

Transport Bill (30 Oct 2000)

Lord Brabazon of Tara: ...franchising process to explore with bus and other transport providers the possibility of them providing connecting services.

Transport Bill (26 Oct 2000)

Lord Whitty: ...contained in the Bill would require local authorities to consult in any case. I suppose there are other potential users. For example, bus users may be members of motoring organisations or motor cycling organisations and so on. I am not entirely sure whether it is intended that such organisations should have a specific role, other than the one they have in relation to the integrated...

In this context, the Department is currently progressing a number of road improvement schemes, together with measures in support of public transport, cycling and walking.

Countryside and Rights of Way Bill (11 Oct 2000)

Lord Whitty: ...of bridleways. However, the process by which that would normally be carried out would come under road traffic regulations rather than under the procedures in this Bill. With regard to both cycling and horse-riding, I understand that, because of the more general implications, the general view of people involved in those activities is that that is probably the better way to proceed. However,...

Political Parties, Elections and Referendums Bill (10 Oct 2000)

His campaigning methods mostly consisted of climbing inside a large cardboard box, on the outside of which were painted his slogans, renting a bicycle and slowly cycling around the constituency. It cannot be said that he obtained great public support. I think that 30 votes were cast in his favour. Perhaps Mr Boaks was what one might call a one club golfer....

Scottish Parliament: Transport Expenditure (28 Sep 2000)

Sarah Boyack: ...£200 million in the period to 2004. The public transport fund is already supporting transport innovation throughout the country. All types of transport have benefited, but there have been too few cycling and walking projects, so I have decided to give more prominence to cycling, walking and safer streets in allocating the fund. We have committed £58 million to the fund for 2001...

It is not a wealthy area, yet it is proposed that they might have to pay the £150-a-year levy. Cycle tax has been mentioned.

Baroness Scott of Needham Market: ...experiences of our European neighbours. In many continental towns and cities, home zones have made a significant contribution to the safety of vulnerable road users and have encouraged walking and cycling. Perhaps most significantly in the long term, reclaiming space for people rather than vehicles has done much to foster a sense of community, which we all fear is fast disappearing. Quiet...

Orders of the Day — Warm Homes and Energy Conservation Bill: Strategy Relating to Fuel Poverty (21 Jul 2000)

Tom Brake: ...No. 10. Hon. Members may be aware of a UK company that produces a special electronic black box that can be attached to boilers. The company tells me that the box can reduce significantly boilers' cycling, which is extremely energy inefficient.
