To ask the Assembly Commission what plans it has to promote cycling to people based in Parliament Buildings.

The Assembly Commission introduced a ‘Cycle to Work Scheme for Assembly Secretariat staff in February 2013 to encourage staff to cycle to work. The uptake on was encouraging with 15 people joining the scheme and it will run annually with new applications accepted during February and March.
In addition to this, Building Services Branch has actively promoted the annual 10 Minute Cycle Challenge and Active Belfast Workplace Cycle Challenge to all building users.
Further information on cycling is available to all staff via the Sustainable Development Office page on the Assembly intranet, AssISt.
