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...

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

John Reid: ...changed considerably over the past 10 or 20 years. Two decades ago, one child in three, I think, walked unaccompanied to school. The figure now is one in nine. Improving the safety of walking and cycling, especially round schools, is not only one of our manifesto commitments but would be of enormous benefit both to children and the wider community. However, we recognise and fully...

Integrated Transport Policy (20 Jul 1998)

John Prescott: ..., the number of bus passengers has fallen by 25 per cent. Car drivers sit in traffic for hours. The Confederation of British Industry complains of the £15 billion cost of congestion. Walking and cycling are often unpleasant and dangerous. Many women fear for their own safety on public transport, and for the safety of their children going to school. If we do nothing, traffic will grow...

Petition: Back Pain (13 Jul 1998)

Tessa Jowell: ...minor disabilities that can cause distress and affect a person's mental well-being. In children and young people, in particular, physical activity is known to have multiple health benefits. Activities such as walking or cycling can improve the growth and development of bone and muscle, control blood pressure and promote the development of a healthy body weight. We in the Department of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Transport and the Regions: Vehicle Emissions (7 Jul 1998)

Norman Baker: ...monitoring site, the maximum recommended level has been exceeded 719 times since 1 January 1997? Can he confirm that the White Paper will be radical and will concentrate on encouraging walking, cycling and transfer to rail; and that the lunches that the Prime Minister has had with the Automobile Association and others will not in any way weaken its radicalism?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Transport and the Regions: School Journeys (9 Jun 1998)

Mr Lawrie Quinn: You, Madam Speaker, will know that this week is national bike week. May I commend to you all those people who joined me this morning on the cycle ride to the House? Let me ask my right hon. Friend a very serious question: do not many parents find it difficult to allow their children to progress to school outside the confines of the motor car, because they fear for their safety? Will my right...

Orders of the Day — Local Agenda 21 (3 Jun 1998)

Angela Eagle: ...schemes aim to bring home the message that individual actions do count and that the public can make a big contribution to protecting both their local and their global environment. Simple things, like sometimes walking or cycling rather than always using the car, cleaning the car with a bucket and not a hose, or heating only enough water in the kettle for a cup of coffee, all help. Our...

School Transport (13 May 1998)

Dr George Turner: ...could only be enhanced by the introduction of measures designed to reduce such car traffic substantially. Any review of school transport must encourage local authorities to ensure that provision is made to encourage pupils to walk or cycle safely to school, and for appropriate alternatives to the private car wherever reasonable. The Bill will ensure that the varied needs of individual...

Petition: Road Traffic Reduction (National Targets) Bill (24 Apr 1998)

Andrew Robathan: ...the Bill—I am a junior sponsor of it—as an important step in the right direction. We heard that it wasted a lot of paper, but it is a very small Bill. Sadly, I do not think that it is printed on recycled paper. It is also very cheap at —1.10, if anyone wishes to buy it. It represents a step towards reducing traffic. I congratulate the hon. Member for Ceredigion (Mr....

Energy Policy (22 Apr 1998)

David Chaytor: ...often enough that the Government's responsibility is to use the tax system to engineer the shift away from the dominance of the private car and to encourage the use of public transport and more walking and cycling, as well as to encourage people to question whether their journeys are strictly necessary. The Budget contained important steps towards a green taxation policy, but those steps...

Adjournment (Easter) (8 Apr 1998)

John Cryer: ...more sensible. It also made it far easier for people who did not have much money to get about or go across London, into the west end, central London or wherever. We have to convince parents that children should walk or cycle to school, and many schemes are now in place. Sustrans—a civil engineering, pro-cycling charity—is involved in schemes with 10 local authorities and their...

Orders of the Day — National Lottery Bill [Lords] (7 Apr 1998)

Mr Tony Banks: ...Eater, so that is where he must have been all evening. I hope that he had a jolly good time. When the right hon. Member spoke, I felt that I had dropped into a time warp in which spinsters were cycling to church and we were all drinking warm beer while listening to the gentle smack of leather on willow. That is what he used to talk about. Like me, the right hon. Gentleman lived in...
