Departments: Public Transport

Volume 463: debated on Monday 23 July 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what estimate her Department has made of the number of its staff using public transport to commute. (147322)

Based on our most recent sample survey of staff we estimate that 93 per cent. of staff working at London headquarters use public transport for the main part of their journey to work. The Department makes provision for those who wish to cycle to work but limited car parking is only provided for those with medically certified requirements. Loans are available for either season ticket or cycle purchase to encourage the use of these modes of transport.
