The Government made a commitment to appoint a cycling and walking champion as one of the fifty actions in its response to the Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy: Safety Review, which was published in November 2018. The Department has been considering the appropriate scope and remit for the role, and has been discussing this informally with a number of stakeholders. I also plan to discuss this matter shortly with the regional Cycling and Walking Commissioners who have already been appointed in different parts of the country.
