As corporate members of the All-Party Parliamentary Cycling Group (APPCG), we have the opportunity to submit questions to a transport minister. With another round of questioning happening soon, we would like to know what cycling-related question you would like answered by a transport minister.
Please use the comments section at the bottom of the page to submit your question.
To view examples of previous questions please look at Parliamentary Monitoring for October, visit: allpartycycling.org/october-2017
We will be submitting a question of our own, which reads as follows:
“In light of a recent trend for schools to formulate policies on cycling which impose onerous rules on pupils who would like to cycle – policies that include the requirement that pupils seek written permission from the head teacher before they can cycle to school, or threats to impound bicycles used by pupils who refuse to wear helmets – will the government consider issuing standardised guidance to school that is inline with that offered by Cycling UK? “
The best five questions will be sent to all members of the APPCG, and they can then choose if they would like to submit a question into the ballot. If they are not successful in the ballot, then we can request that they be submitted as written questions. The main difference between an oral and written question is that an oral question is asked in person by an MP, who will then have the opportunity for a follow-up question. One of the Transport Ministers will answer. Often it is the Secretary of State.
We are a cycle insurance company like no other
Not only are we Britain’s most ethical insurance company, we campaign for sustainable transport. Sometimes that means protesting until a school gets the zebra crossing they’ve been refused, or running 60 roadshows this year to encourage people out of their cars, or fixing bicycles for free. Supporting this work is easy – you simply have to take out cycle insurance with us, cover that just happens to be excellent.
Unlike other insurers we never devalue your bike. And if you ride a carbon bike, rest assured we will never have a cracked frame repaired – we will always replace your bike with a new one. How many other insurers can say that? Find out more
