To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what take-up there has been of the cycle to work salary sacrifice scheme since it started.

The Department does not retain data on the uptake of the Cycle to Work scheme. The Scheme is an employee benefit covered by an exemption and therefore employers do not have to make an annual tax return regarding the benefit.

However the Cycle to Work Alliance has published reports containing information on take up of the scheme: http://www.cycletoworkalliance.org.uk/news.html, and they state that in 2014 record numbers of employees participated in the cycle to work scheme.

Does this answer the above question?

Yes2 people think so
