Infrastructure Bill [Lords]: New Clause 13 — Cycling and Walking Investment Strategies (26 Jan 2015)

Julian Huppert: It is a pleasure to have an opportunity to speak at the end of the debate, and to see the new clause make progress. As I think the House knows by now, the case for cycling and walking is incredibly strong. It is a great way to travel. It is environmentally friendly, healthy, reliable, cheap and fun. It cuts congestion, so that everyone else benefits as well. It boosts the economy, it saves...

Infrastructure Bill [Lords]: New Clause 13 — Cycling and Walking Investment Strategies (26 Jan 2015)

Julian Huppert: On behalf of everyone else from the all-party cycling group, others who supported the new clause and all the organisations who have worked on this, I thank the Minister for the Government agreeing to do this, because it will make a big difference. Will he update us on what has happened to the draft strategy that came out last year? When should we expect a full-blown strategy to take effect?

Written Answers — Department for Communities and Local Government: Planning: Health (3 Nov 2014)

Julian Huppert: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, what steps he is taking to ensure that the planning systems helps to promote physical activity, including cycling and walking; what assessment he has made of the wellbeing benefits of such measures; and what assessment he has made of the potential savings to the public purse from public health improvements arising from such...

Cycling (16 Oct 2014)

Julian Huppert: The shadow Minister is making some interesting points. He has heard a lot of calls from his Back Benchers to support the “Get Britain Cycling” recommendations and commit money. Will he say now that the Labour party will include “Get Britain Cycling” in its manifesto and will he commit to spending £10 a year per person in the next Parliament if the Labour party is...

Cycling (16 Oct 2014)

Julian Huppert: I wonder if I can bring the hon. Gentleman back to the very exciting New Forest cycle hire scheme. As I understand it, more of the responses to the public consultation from people living within the forest were in favour of the scheme than against it. Does he agree that it is a rather perverse decision from the authority to listen to the public, hear that they support it and then decide that...

Cycling (16 Oct 2014)

Julian Huppert: ...Limehouse (Jim Fitzpatrick), who speaks persuasively, as ever, on this matter. It is also a pleasure to swap roles with the hon. Member for Dudley North (Ian Austin), with whom I have worked on cycling for over four years now, along with all the other members of the all-party group. I pay particular tribute, as other Members have done, to Adam Coffman for his work promoting the benefits...

Cycling (16 Oct 2014)

Julian Huppert: The hon. Lady is absolutely right to highlight that point, and indeed that cycle route, which I have been to see—I know how much it is needed, because it is not a very nice road otherwise. The money has to be available for community groups; it cannot simply be driven from the top down. There are good things in the plan. There are some encouraging words and good proposals—solid...

Cycling (16 Oct 2014)

Julian Huppert: The hon. Gentleman is absolutely right. In Cambridge we are beginning work on a 3,000-place cycle park at the station because it is such an important thing to do, and the Government have supported that financially. Why are the Government not taking the obvious steps? Is it because of the “war on the motorist” concern exemplified by the Communities and Local Government Secretary?...

Cycling (16 Oct 2014)

Julian Huppert: ..., apparently, though it feels like we are in autumn already—it will have a proper funding commitment. Perhaps that is his plan. Or perhaps the Chancellor got so excited by the compelling case for cycling that he has hogged all the money so as to be able to announce it in the autumn statement. I certainly hope for that, and we have been trying to press him to do it. Otherwise, I...

Cycling (16 Oct 2014)

Julian Huppert: ...The Times and Mary Bowers. He might be amused to know that The Daily Telegraph recently published a list of the seven most absurd Liberal Democrat policies, one of which was supporting funding for cycling, so there is clearly some way to go.

Criminal Justice and Courts Bill: Clause 58 — Interveners and costs (17 Jun 2014)

Julian Huppert: ...effective alternatives. Since 2006, the organisation Redthread has been embedding workers in the trauma centre at King’s College hospital. Its staff work closely with accident and emergency staff to try to disrupt the cycle of violence that brings hundreds of young people to the hospital each year. Every week, their clinical colleagues see mostly young men who for a range of reasons...

Criminal Justice and Courts Bill (Programme) No. 2: New Clause 29 — Fixed term recalls (12 May 2014)

Julian Huppert: ...young people and of women in prison. I welcome that, although I think more could be done to reduce the total number of people in prison by reducing the number of crimes further and by ensuring that those who have committed crimes do not reoffend and do not go back into the cycle of crime. Work is being done on that, but I hope that we can make further progress and I hope that we will...

Julian Huppert: What progress he has made on implementing recommendations of the “Get Britain Cycling” report of the all-party parliamentary cycling group. [R]

Housing Benefit and Universal Credit in the Social Housing Sector (Regular Payments): Police (12 Feb 2014)

Julian Huppert: ...could have been much better spent. We should also give the police much more flexibility to innovate. An example is a scheme in my constituency known as “lights instead of tickets”. Cyclists who cycle without lights are given seven days to buy lights to avoid paying a fine. That has led to a huge number of people acquiring lights, which is far better than a huge number of people...

Pavements (4 Feb 2014)

Julian Huppert: ...boost footfall and trading by up to 40%.” My hon. Friend the Minister might like to talk to the Secretary of State, who has often said that the only way of advancing trading is not to encourage cars, but to promote cycling and walking, which do a huge amount to promote trading. I hope that he will encourage his right hon. Friend to change the focus. Bad pavements cause problems for...

[Mr David Crausby in the Chair] — Immigration Controls (22 Oct 2013)

Julian Huppert: the police when reporting to a police station.’” That somewhat undervalues the level of support one could expect from a police station, and makes it a far more reasonable action not to go there. We are trapping many of these people in a cycle of hopelessness, leaving them very vulnerable. I suggest Members look at that report and the British Red Cross report on destitution....

Regulation of the Private Rented Sector: New Clause 11 — Power of community support officer to issue fixed penalty notice for cycle light offence (15 Oct 2013)

Julian Huppert: the debate. I welcome Government new clause 11. It is right to extend powers to PCSOs, allowing them to issue fixed penalty notices to cyclists riding without lights. I am a huge champion of cycling. I was delighted when the House passed a motion to get Britain cycling. One of the banes of my life in that context is cyclists who do not obey the rules of the road. Anything that we can do...
