Public Transport (Incentives)

Volume 447: debated on Monday 12 June 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what incentives are available to encourage members of his staff to use public transport for travelling to and from work. (75096)

DFID provides interest-free loans to staff for the purchase of travel season tickets. This is the only direct incentive we provide to staff, although we also publicise public transport alternatives, engage with local authorities on the provision of public transport around our East Kilbride office, and monitor and report on trends in our Green Transport Plans.
