Cycling: Hampshire

Volume 496: debated on Monday 20 July 2009

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Transport how many qualified instructors of cycle safety training there were in (a) Test Valley borough and (b) Southampton in each of the last five years. (287763)

We do not hold this information.

There are over 3,000 national standard trainers in the country and over 170 organisations registered to deliver Bikeability training, the name under which the national standard is promoted in England.

This includes 10 organisations operating in Hampshire. Four of these, including the city council operate in Southampton. We do not hold details of how many national standard trainers each training organisation employs.

We have no information on the number of people who may deliver other forms of cycle training which does not meet the national standard in the Test Valley, Southampton or nationally.
