§ Mr. Charles Clarke
Bedfordshire and Gwent are the only two police forces known not to have issued fixed penalty notices to people cycling on pavements during the period 1 August to 31 December 1999.
The four police forces mentioned in my answer of 20 July 2000, Official Report, column 323W, for which information was not currently available were Cambridgeshire, Essex, Humberside and West Yorkshire. Data have now been received from Humberside (which shows that 19 fixed penalty notices were issued for cycling on the pavement in the period August to December 1999) and from Essex (76 such notices). Information by individual police divisions within Essex is not available.
No request has yet been made to police forces to provide similar information for 2000.
