To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what directions he has given to the London traffic director concerning cycles.
The Secretary of State's draft traffic management and parking guidance which he issued for consultation on 11 March sets out his aims for cycling in London and possible measures to assist cyclists in relation to red routes. It will be for the London traffic director and the London local authorities to have regard to the final guidance when meeting their respective traffic management responsibilities.
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what is the budget for cycle schemes within the traffic division for 1992–93; and what is the proportion of the total budget for the traffic division of cycle schemes.
