Default How many cyclists to change the Highway Code?

It's a bit incidental, but there's an interesting written answer from
Dr Ladyman yesterday. I draw some comfort from the fact that Ladyman
is having to justify his departments numbskulliness to the house on a
daily basis. Hopefully something will start to sink in soon.


Dr. Strang: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what
representations he has received on the revised version of rule 47 of
the Highway Code from cyclists and their representatives. [139094]

Dr. Ladyman: In the course of the public consultation on proposed
changes to the Highway Code in 2006, DSA received a total of 2,612
comments on rule 58 in the consultation text (the equivalent of rule
47 in the current edition of the Highway Code and rule 61 in the
proposed draft code laid in Parliament on 28 March 2007). 32 of these
comments were from cycling organisations, 29 from other organisations,
10 from MPs and 2,541 from individuals who may or may not be cyclists.
A summary of consultation responses, including those on cycling
issues, was placed in the Libraries of both Houses when the proposed
revised code was laid before Parliament on 28 March 2007. It is also
available on line at:


In addition to this consultation, we have since received
correspondence from MPs, cycling organisations and individuals on this
issue. The numbers of such queries have not been collected.
