To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, with reference to his Department's publication, Gear change: A bold vision for cycling and walking, published in 2020, whether the target that half of all journeys in towns and cities being walked or cycled by 2030 replaces the target to double cycling and walking by 2025 in the Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy.

It does not: The Gear Change vision and Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy aims are complementary. The second Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy (CWIS 2) will be published once the Government has agreed its long-term spending plans for active travel at the next multi-year Spending Review. It will give a statutory basis to the vision outlined in the Gear Change plan, as well as setting out the financial resources available for cycling and walking and the other matters required by the Infrastructure Act 2015, including targets for cycling and walking. These plans will be formally set out to Parliament in due course.
