For the latest list of parliamentary monitoring visit: https://allpartycycling.org/july-2018/

Julian Lewis (Con): To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, whether his Department has received representations from or on behalf of (a) partially sighted pedestrians and (b) other pedestrians on requirements for bicycles to be fitted with effective auditory warning devices whenever ridden on public roads or paths; and if he will make a statement.

Barry Sheerman (Lab): To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what steps the Government is taking to facilitate increased uptake of (a) ultra-low emission vehicles and (b) active travel.

Rebecca Pow (Con):  One thing that would reduce road congestion is, of course, getting people out of their cars and on to their bikes. We very much welcome the upgrade of the A358 in Taunton, but does the Secretary of State agree that whatever route is chosen by Highways England, the provision of adequate cycling infrastructure should very much be part of upgrades?

Layla Moran (Lib Dem): The welcome Gilligan report on cycling came out this week and included recommendations for major investment in Oxford. May we please have a debate on that important issue?

Jim Cunningham (Lab): To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what steps he is taking to improve provision for (a) cycling and (b) walking as alternative transport options in Coventry.

Ian Austin (Lab): To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what assessment he has made of the effect on the safety of young people of driving vehicles with high brake horse power.

Lord Lexden (Con): To ask Her Majesty’s Government how many cyclists breached rule 64 of the Highway Code by riding on a pavement in the most recent period for which figures are available.

Jim Shannon (DUP): To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, whether he is taking steps with local authorities to provide more funding for greenways to encourage more people to cycle; and if he will make a statement.

Colleen Fletcher (Lab): To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, when he plans to introduce legislative proposals to extend the maximum sentence for causing death by dangerous driving.

Colleen Fletcher (Lab): To ask the Attorney General, how many sentences imposed for causing death by dangerous driving his Department has considered under the unduly lenient sentence scheme in each of the last five years; on how many occasions in each of the last five years he has referred such sentences to the Court of Appeal; and how many of those sentences have been extended by the Court of Appeal as the original sentence imposed fell outside the range of sentences that could reasonably have been imposed in the circumstances of the case.
