To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what assessment he has made of the potential merits for law enforcement of requiring e-bikes to display identification or registration numbers; and if he will make a statement.

The Government has no current plans to introduce identification or registration numbers for any type of pedal cycle, including e-bikes. Such a requirement would be likely to lead to a significant reduction in the number of people cycling, and the costs would be likely to outweigh the benefits that cycling brings, both for cyclists themselves and for wider society.
