Subject: London Assembly Cycling ammendment
Last week you emailed to ask me to support an amendment that
would increase spending on cycling in London. Today I seconded and the Liberal
Democrat group expressed their strong support for that amendment.
Sadly despite your fantastic lobbying efforts and the
support of the majority of assembly members the amendment did not secure the
two thirds support that it required to pass and force the mayor to follow
This is because the Tory members chose to support the Mayor instead of
listening to their constituents.
However this doesn’t mean that the drive to improve cycle
safety in London is over. I will continue to press the Mayor and TfL bosses to
fund, prioritise and cater to the needs of cyclists at every possible occasion.
I will be doing this in the press, at monthly Mayor’s Question Time and through
the Transport Committee.
I will keep you updated on my progress but in the meantime
if you need more information please do check out my website and twitter feed.
With best wishes,
Leader of the Liberal Democrat Group
Chair Transport Committee
Deputy Chair Police and Crime Committee
