To ask Her Majesty's Government what data they used to support the claim made in their Net Zero Strategy: Build Back Greener, published on 19 October 2021, that 42 per cent of journeys in towns and cities were made by cycling and walking in 2019.

The data comes from the National Travel Survey: an annual, nationally representative survey which measures how people travel across England. The figure was based on analysis of the proportion of short trips (that is, those under 5 miles) that were taken across town and city settlements, as classified by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.
