To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, pursuant to his oral contribution of 5 March 2015, Official Report, column 1064, on cycling and walking, for what reasons those provisions to cycle lanes in part 6 of the Traffic Management Act 2004 have not yet been implemented; and when he expects those powers to be implemented.

The implementation of the provisions for civil enforcement of mandatory cycle lanes in Part 6 of the Traffic Management Act 2004 would result in the installation by local authorities of camera-based systems to identify contraventions by motorists. Such changes would not be introduced without first consulting with motorists, cyclists and local authorities to establish the merits, or otherwise, of increasing camera-based enforcement. Those powers will not be implemented in this Parliament.
