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.'. While the House is in a happy mood of consensus on environmental objectives—which was far less obvious in our earlier debate on the fuel duty escalator—let us turn to ...

Scottish Parliament: Peripheral Route, Aberdeen (23 Jun 1999)

Sarah Boyack: ...I expect Aberdeen City Council and Aberdeenshire Council to address: the importance of the western peripheral route relative to sustainable transport measures in the city centre, such as walking, cycling, increased bus priority and improved bus frequencies; and the extent to which bus priority and other measures in the city centre are dependent on early progress of the bypass. I understand...

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

Eric Pickles: ...to 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. Were it not for the European elections, the Government might have accepted our proposals. Perhaps our victory has had the detrimental effect of...

Rail Network Integration (London) (16 Jun 1999)

Jim Fitzpatrick: In opening this debate, I do not think that it is at all inappropriate to seek your indulgence, Mr. Deputy Speaker, simply to mention that this is national bike week, and that today is national cycle to work day, which is strongly supported by the Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions. This morning, I personally participated in the events, by cycling from Barking to...

WHO Environment and Health Conference (15 Jun 1999)

Bells on Pedal Cycles (19 May 1999)

Ben Bradshaw: ...my hon. Friend the Member for Broxtowe (Dr. Palmer) brings it to the House with the noblest of motives. I should declare an interest in that I am chairman of the all-party parliamentary group on cycling, which now has a record membership. I cover about 200 miles a week by bike, both in my Exeter constituency and in London. Although the Bill is well intentioned, I speak against it because...

Prayers: A63 (Melton Junction) (12 May 1999)

Nick Raynsford: ...to local authorities for putting together their local transport plans says that we expect them to consider road safety issues in all relevant policies, including social policies and measures to encourage walking and cycling.

Orders of the Day — Greater London Authority Bill: Road User Charging (5 May 1999)

Tom Brake: .... It did not receive the support of the official Opposition, apparently because they did not understand what it meant. Road user charging must be hypothecated for the purposes of public transport, cycling and walking, which is why we have tabled an amendment on that subject. It must also be hypothecated permanently, and we have tabled an amendment to that effect. It is clear that we...

Orders of the Day — Rail Services (Wansbeck) (27 Apr 1999)

Glenda Jackson: ...poor quality of life for people who live and work there. Our aim is to reduce people's dependency on the car by delivering real alternatives—such as better public transport and improved facilities for cycling and walking. Our railway network will have a central role in an integrated transport system, and if we are to persuade people of the benefits of switching from car to rail, we...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (20 Apr 1999)

Michael Jack: ...had until fairly recently carried on declining. When talking about a new deal, there was an argument about the dead-weight effect of that measure. The argument involved whether the natural cycling of jobs and changes in the economy might well have produced new employment opportunities. I must be fair to the hon. Gentleman because, having quoted an analysis, I must accept that it...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Environmentally Friendly Road Transport (15 Apr 1999)

Ben Bradshaw: I warmly welcome the imaginative measures in the Budget to promote cycling, including the tax breaks for employers and employees to encourage cycling to work, which will go a substantial way towards helping us to achieve our target of quadrupling cycling by 2010. What is my hon. Friend doing to publicise those measures and to increase the take-up?

Orders of the Day — Employment Relations Bill: Motor Cycling (30 Mar 1999)

Glenda Jackson: I am most grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for Ealing, North (Mr. Pound) for raising the issue of motor cycling, for his generosity in affording the opportunity for our hon. Friend the Member for Salford (Ms Blears) to add her particularly informed contribution to the debate, and for raising the memory of Marlon Brando in virtually anything. I am grateful to my hon. Friend the Member...

Orders of the Day — Right to Roam Bill (26 Mar 1999)

Mr David Atkinson: ...Denton and Reddish (Mr. Bennett) mentioned the Glyders, the Carnedds and the Snowdon horseshoe, which are my second home. Those are healthy pursuits which, together with walking, horse-riding and cycling, are widely shared by our constituents. Outward-bound activities such as orienteering are becoming more popular, not just among young people. Ever more people will be pursuing such...

Prayers: Transport (Eastern Region) (24 Mar 1999)

Glenda Jackson: ...injustice: burdens left to us by the previous Administration which we are tackling with great speed and concentration. My hon. Friends highlighted the need to use, for example, pedestrian and cycling facilities, not only to offer us greater choice as individuals but, very importantly, to begin to reduce the need for children to be taken to school by car. My hon. Friend the Member for...

Orders of the Day — Police (4 Feb 1999)

Hazel Blears: ...operational policing. What matters to the people whom I represent is that the police are there, making the community safe. The authority proposes to restructure the tactical vehicle crime unit and to deliver off-road motor cycling facilities through other people. It has looked again at its cleaning and catering services, it has reviewed the traffic warden service and it has even...

Travel Links (North-West) (27 Jan 1999)

Glenda Jackson: ...message from the extensive consultation that we undertook prior to publishing our White Paper. We must reduce dependency on the car, and switch to more sustainable transport modes—train, bus, cycling, walking. Our aim is to increase choice for all by improving alternative modes of transport to secure sustainable mobility. Emphasis is very much on a package of measures. There is no...

Road Traffic Reduction (9 Dec 1998)

Nick Raynsford: ...It would lead to significant worsening in congestion. We must not forget the three in 10 households that have no access to a car. They are totally reliant on other forms of transport such as public transport, cycling and walking. Our policies aim to encourage more responsible car use and to extend the choices available to all groups in society. The White Paper sets out how we will...

Environmental Taxation (18 Nov 1998)

Tim Loughton: ...college has just bought at its own expense and on its own initiative 50 bicycles through a deal with a local bicycle seller. It has made them available free of charge to its students on a year-by-year basis to encourage more cycling to college rather than car use. If the Government were to kick-start such schemes throughout the country, the attractions to colleges, businesses and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Employment: School Transport (22 Oct 1998)

Dr George Turner: In doing so, will he consider the clear need for integration between the variety of methods of transport? For example, safe walking and safe cycling need to be examined with bussing to school. Moreover, will he use the Government initiative on raising standards—action zones—as a way forward in experimentation and innovation, so that new partnerships can produce better solutions...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Transport and the Regions, Relating to Transport: Road Congestion (20 Oct 1998)

Hazel Blears: As a keen motor cyclist, I am delighted that the White Paper recognises for the first time the role that motor cycles can play in reducing congestion, particularly in urban areas. Will my right hon. Friend encourage local councils to promote the role of motor cycling in tackling congestion in experiments such as those in Reading and Bristol, where motor cycles have been allowed to use bus...
