§ Tom Brake
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport (1)how many bicycles were carried by train by each train operating company in each year since 1996. 
(2) how many bicycle spaces were provided on the railways (a) at the latest available date and (b) in 1996; and how many bicycles were carried by train by each train operating company in each year since 1996. 
(3) which train operating companies have increased the number of bicycle spaces on board their rolling stock since 1996. 
§ Mr. Jamieson
Information on the number of bicycles carried each year is not held. There is no method by which this can be monitored, as passengers with bicycles do not necessarily need a reservation, or in most cases even a ticket because the majority of train operators do not make a charge for the carriage of bicycles.
