Introduction from Selaine Saxby MP


Ruth Cabdury MP

  • Just wanted to say that our last proper formal AGM was in 2019.
  • The Government has transformed its policy on cycling and walking.
  • We are in a transformed environment in terms of cycling and walking. The main challenge – is how to combat the small and vociferous minority of people who oppose measures to improve cycling and walking.
  • Hope people today will get the chance to contribute what we have done and what we should be doing.


Selaine Saxby MP

  • Active travel champion for the Conservative Environment Network.
  • A lot of successes have been in towns and cities.
  • This week in Selaine’s constituent the first e-scooter trial was launched.
  • Trying to get people out of cars when your nearest supermarket is 20 miles away is a challenge.


Adam Coffman

  • Took everyone through the activity report.

Income and Expenditure Statement – Fabian Hamilton MP

  • Delighted to tell members we brought forward a balance from last year.
  • The group asks for money for affiliations from outside bodies including commercial organisations and trade bodies.
  • Outgoings include staffing and external support from Fusion Media.
  • Thus far Fusion has helped us enormously in terms of getting affiliations and members.
  • The income and expenditure statement was unanimously approved.


Adam Coffman proposed the new committee (detailed below)

  • Requested that Fleur Anderson MP and Peter Bottomley MP.
  • The new committee was unanimously approved.


Adam Coffman took us through the activity plan for the next year.


Fleur Anderson MP

  • My two issues to raise are – the need to have cycle hangars alongside cycle lanes and learn from councils who have put lots in successfully. Ours hasn’t.


Darren Henry MP

  • Getting lots of casework about e-scooters.
  • The APPGCW held a meeting on this and is writing to Rachel Maclean MP about the issue of private e-scooters.


Meg Hillier MP

  • The perennial issue of bikes on trains please. The Williams Review of Rail is due by end of the month so it’s good time to push
  • There is a whole issue about rolling stock and how it is commissioned.
  • If we want to have proper integrated travel this is the bit that is missing still.
  • Selaine is more than happy to raise this with the Minister.


Adam Coffman

  • e-scooters high on the agenda.


Lord Bates

  • Proposing having a walk and talk meeting close to Parliament.


Ruth thanked everyone for their contributions and is looking forward to working with everyone. We have to think about Parliamentary activity and how we can best influence policy.
