The Government recognises that cycling has significant health benefits, and the Department for Transport will continue to work with the Department for Health and Social Care and other Government Departments to achieve the aims and ambitions of the Government’s Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy. Most recently I met with the Parliamentary under Secretary of State for Health and Social Care and the Chief Executive of Public Health England on 9 January to discuss opportunities for joint working.
