To ask the President of the Council if she will introduce travel allowances for hon. Members using their bicycles on Parliamentary business. [16844]

I have asked the Senior Salaries Review Body to consider the merits of a cycling allowance for MPs in its next report. The report will, if appropriate, make recommendations on a possible mechanism for reimbursing the cost of using bicycles on official business—for Members of both Houses—and recommend an appropriate figure for any allowance. The SSRB's report is due to be published in the New Year.
