Departmental Staff

Volume 447: debated on Tuesday 13 June 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what incentives are available to encourage members of his staff to use public transport for travelling to and from work. (75098)

It is Government policy to encourage the use of sustainable travel. In the Department, we encourage staff, wherever possible, to use public transport or cycle to work especially those commuting to our London offices due to very limited car parking and traffic congestion.

The incentives made available to encourage staff to use public transport to and from work are interest free loans for season tickets and cycle purchases loans for those who want them.
