Local Government Bill [H.L.] (1 Feb 2000)

Lord Tope: to amend an amendment to which the Minister has not yet spoken. I shall do so anyway. It relates to a subject which has been dear to my heart for years and years in local government; that is, cycle allowances. I say immediately that if this amendment is passed, it will be much too late for me but it will be in plenty of time for many others. Members of your Lordships' House may be...

Road Accidents: Child Deaths (13 Jan 2000)

Lord Whitty: ...--it is not true of children in cars where the safety record is greatly improved, in part as a result of the better application of seat belts and vehicle design; nor is it the case in relation to cycling. Child pedestrians are at risk and traffic-calming and other such measures to curb speed will make a great difference.

European Council, Helsinki, 10th-11th December (13 Dec 1999)

Lord Strathclyde: ...the enthusiasm of entrepreneurs destroyed by such regulation? What was it all for? What has the Prime Minister achieved for small businesses in Britain? In 1997 the Prime Minister preened himself, cycling around Amsterdam as a great European. No more bicycles now, my Lords. Instead, he has found himself being railroaded towards imposing a disastrous tax on the City of London. He was...

Opposition Day: Tube Investment (8 Dec 1999)

Patrick Hall: ...through ticketing. Those facilities do not yet exist in Bedford but they should and could—however, I am disappointed at progress on that project. The Government genuinely back all modes of transport—walking, cycling, driving, buses, taxis, trains, ships and planes. All those factors are necessary if we are to work together, where appropriate, to contribute to the strength of...

Geraint Davies: Will my hon. Friend give an assessment of the transport plans he has received covering the London area?

Address in Reply to Her Majesty's Most Gracious Speech (22 Nov 1999)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: must be made available for facilities and developments which attract freight and extra passengers and create high quality interchange between rail and other modes of transport such as bus, cycling and walking.

Sarah Boyack: our cities and in the more congested central belt. We must make public transport more attractive and seek ways of shifting freight off our roads. We must also recognise the important role that walking and cycling can play in an integrated strategy. We must ensure that they are safe options. Roads have an important role and we will maintain and restore the motorway and trunk road network...

It gives me great pleasure to move the motion and to...

Class III: Transport (12 Jul 1999)

James Gray: ...hon. Member for Carshalton and Wallington (Mr. Brake) because he talks glibly about the countryside even though he lives in central London. He is more at home talking about such things as walking, cycling, integrated transport and cutting vehicle emissions, which are the home territory of the Liberal Democrats, than some of the issues on which he pontificates often in this place. The...

John Greenway: ...of State, Home Office, the hon. Member for Brent, South (Mr. Boateng), has recently expressed concern about a particularly prevalent minor offence that youngsters are wont to commit, which is cycling on the pavement.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Cycles and Cyclist's Safety Equipment (6 Jul 1999)

Patricia Hewitt: I beg to move amendment No. 13, in page 27, line 1, leave out from 'to' to end of line 3 and insert 'the condition that the employee must use the cycle or safety equipment mainly for qualifying journeys.'.

I understand...

Clause 6: Payment of Tax Credit by Employers etc (22 Jun 1999)

Eric Pickles: the same article, the Prime Minister is worried about the effect on middle England—again, something that the Paymaster General has embraced: she is clearly in favour of warm beer, and matrons cycling happily through the countryside.
