asked the Minister of Transport how many new road constructions that he has approved, especially those linking residential areas with industrial and shopping areas, have provision for cycleways.

I am afraid this information is not available because local authorities are responsible for this type of road provision and their schemes do not require my approval.I wish, however, to see cycling given proper priority in the planning nad regulation of transport. I therefore announced in the House on 25 June that I have commissioned a review of cycling policy and I propose to publish a consultation paper shortly.
