§ Mr. Lazarowicz
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, Local Government and the Regions what consultations he has had with organisations representing(a) pedestrians, (b) cyclists and (c) public transport operators regarding the use of bus lanes by motor cyclists. 
§ Mr. Jamieson
The Department has had no specific consultation about the use of bus lanes by motorcyclists but is aware of a range of concerns about this use, especially among cyclists' organisations. The Department's advice does not promote motorcycling in bus lanes but we are carrying out research to see whether this should be changed. We would expect to consult organisations representing various road user groups if, following trials, any changes are proposed.
