To ask Her Majesty's Government what is their policy on the ability of their employees to park a bike at their workplace, wherever in the country that workplace is located; and whether they intend to draw up national guidance for government buildings that reflects best practice.

The Government is keen to encourage more people to cycle to work and supports this through schemes including the Cycle to Work scheme which can help make cycling more affordable for employees in both the public and private sectors. All government buildings are expected to provide sufficient cycle parking facilities wherever practicable, but decisions on this are for individual government departments and agencies. The Government has no current plans to provide national guidance on this matter.
