To ask the Senior Deputy Speaker whether he will make representations to the Metropolitan Police about the dangers caused by cyclists ignoring the law to members of the public, Parliamentary staff and Members using the zebra crossing at 1 Millbank; and whether he will request the police to take enforcement action.
The Metropolitan Police were consulted by Westminster City Council in advance of the decision in 2013 to replace the pelican crossing at 1 Millbank with the current zebra crossing. Following the tragic accident that took place on the crossing on 16 November, the Metropolitan Police are conducting an investigation including safety aspects of the crossing. Additionally, the Director of Facilities has recently contacted the Council. I thank the Noble Lord for highlighting the issue.
