Cycling: Highway Code

Volume 461: debated on Monday 11 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what discussions his Department has held with cycling organisations since the publication of the latest version of the Highway Code. (141116)

Ministers and officials of the Department for Transport regularly meet and discuss various issues informally with a number of cycling organisations. There have been many such discussions since the current version of the Highway Code was first published in 1999.

Since the proposed revisions to the Highway Code were laid before Parliament on 28 March, DfT officials met representatives of CTC to discuss their concerns about certain cycling rules within the Code on 9 May. There have also been discussions by telephone and e-mail between DfT officials and CTC representatives on this issue.
