Orders of the Day — Christmas Day (Trading) Bill (16 Mar 2001)

Steve McCabe: ...we regard as essential exceptions. Why is it that shops that sell intoxicating liquor are exempted? There is nothing vital or essential about them. I am not sure either why anyone desperately needs cycling supplies or accessories on Christmas day. I also have difficulty with the idea that service station shops, which seem to be able to sell almost anything these days, should be exempted. I...

Taxation and Public Spending (14 Mar 2001)

Lord Blackwell: ...and prices and will reduce investment and jobs. I say to the noble Lord, Lord Haskel, that that is no way to raise productivity in the economy. It is wrong to believe that one can raise taxes without destroying wealth or raising money by cycling through a government bureaucracy which takes several pence in every pound simply to pay for tax collection and public administration costs, even...

School Bus Safety (14 Mar 2001)

Keith Hill: ...part of their journey to school instead of travelling by car. One objective of our 10-year plan for transport is to increase the use of buses and other public transport--and, indeed, of walking and cycling--to help reduce the unnecessary car journeys that give rise to much congestion and air pollution. Hon. Members will recognise a potential conflict between such objectives and our targets...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (12 Mar 2001)

Michael Fallon: That is an uncharitable view. More fully, the sentence states that the Government will remove VAT on the purchase of adult cycle helmets … to encourage people to cycle more and improve road safety". The Government are therefore reducing VAT on cycle helmets to improve road safety. I do not quite follow that. Nevertheless, that sentence demonstrates all the overweening ambition and the...

Road Safety (Somerset) (6 Mar 2001)

Keith Hill: ...reduction issues cannot be tackled in isolation. They are an integral part of local transport planning and it is absolutely vital that other transport strategies such as safe routes to schools, home zones and other measures to encourage more walking and cycling are well integrated with road safety in transport planning locally. We were particularly impressed that Somerset has developed...

Guidance as to Exercise of Power of Entry (5 Mar 2001)

Viscount Astor: ..., bicycles to your Lordships' House. On this side of the House we do not have the use of large ministerial cars like noble Lords opposite, so we have to come by the best means available. While bicycling to the House, my noble friend Lord Cope noticed a sign outside a block of flats saying that any bicycle chained to the railings would be clamped and not released until £10 had been...

Bristow Muldoon: To ask the Scottish Executive what action will be taken to encourage further school and workplace cycling initiatives in the light of the recent evaluation of the Scottish cycle challenge initiative. (S1O-3039)

Scottish Parliament written answers — Transport: Transport (22 Feb 2001)

Sarah Boyack: I will be launching a Scottish Travel Awareness Campaign in May, which will aim to increase the number of journeys made by walking, cycling and public transport and to encourage more sensible use of the car. We are currently in discussion with transport operators and local authorities with an aim to developing specific initiatives, including establishing links to sustainable travel events.

Public Bill Committee: Criminal Justice and Police Bill: Clause 14 - Alcohol consumption in designated public places (15 Feb 2001)

Simon Hughes: ...have put up one sign. That was unproductive enough in itself, but the local authority was so unreconstructed that signs were put up everywhere. We had a blitz one summer, and put up signs to stop people cycling on pavements. We were sent out—I kid the Committee not—for three days to put up ``No Cycling'' signs at the top and bottom of sets of 50 steps that no one, apart from a...

Scottish Parliament written answers — Sport: Sport (14 Feb 2001)

Allan Wilson: ...was officially launched during 2000; the SDS newsletter The Changing Times, which is published three times a year; SDS sport specific leaflets covering the sports of athletics, archery, boccia, cycling, swimming, table tennis, football and bowls; an A5 flyer promoting the work of SDS; a comprehensive resource pack, which acts as a one stop shop for disability sport issues, with funding...

Public Bill Committee: Criminal Justice and Police Bill: Clause 4 - Effect of penalty notice (13 Feb 2001)

Simon Hughes: ...guilty, and would prefer the offence to be disposed of in a non-criminal way. I put seriously the proposition that in relation to all these matters that are not related to street trading, driving or cycling offences, it would be a fairer and more equitable system to have a charge sheet and obligation to report to the police station within 21 days. The documentation could be simple, and...

Public Bill Committee: Criminal Justice and Police Bill: Clause 2 - Penalty notices (13 Feb 2001)

Oliver Heald: Listening to the hon. Gentleman, I am reminded of what the Prime Minister said. He said: ``Bizarrely, as the law stands, the police have the power in Britain to levy on-the-spot fines for cycling on the pavement and dog fouling. And yet they have to deal with drunks who get offensive and loutish and often can do nothing about it without a long, expensive process''. Does the hon. Gentleman...

Orders of the Day — Road Transport Bill (9 Feb 2001)

Mr Tom Cox: ...authorities and the police. In some large towns, different local authorities adjoin each other, and my hon. Friend the Member for Hendon (Mr. Dismore) made that point in relation to concessionary fares. Cycle lanes are of great benefit and some London boroughs provide them for their residents and the people who cycle through. However, once cyclists leave that borough, they enter another...

Orders of the Day — Petition: School Bus Services (6 Feb 2001)

Keith Hill: 30 per cent., with 38 per cent. of primary pupils and more than 20 per cent. of secondary pupils travelling to school by car. Bus use has remained relatively stable, at around 20 per cent. Walking and cycling have declined, although 53 per cent. of primary pupils and 42 per cent. of secondary pupils still walk to school. We know that children sitting in cars in congested, slow-moving...

Public Bill Committee: Criminal Justice and Police Bill: Clause 1 - Offences leading to penalties on the spot (6 Feb 2001)

Simon Hughes: ...criminal damage—whether a scratch on a window or the breaking of a shop front. As I told the Minister, the Liberal Democrats are not against fixed penalty notices for appropriate offences such as motoring or cycling offences, litter dropping, or dog fouling. Nor are we opposed to a proposition that there is power to put them in legislation. There should be an Act that gives...

Chile (6 Feb 2001)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...the worst torture took place. We walked around the velodrome, with victims of torture and others, and were struck by the stupidity, the horror and the arbitrariness of it. We stood on a concrete cycling track with beautiful mountains in the background, listening to a man talking about how he was tortured there. That man was just an attendant, a messenger, at the Chilean department of...

Public Bill Committee: Criminal Justice and Police Bill: Clause 1 - Offences leading to penalities on the spot. (6 Feb 2001)

Simon Hughes: ...way, because the vehicle is visible and identifiable by a unique characteristic—the number plate—in a way that individuals are not. It has been argued that fixed penalty notices should apply to cycling offences, such as cycling on pavements. That is sensible, because physical evidence exists, although it is more difficult to establish firm facts, as bicycles do not have...
