A Birmingham wide response has been received from the Conservative Party, the Green Party and the Labour Party.
Margaret Okole (Green Party) has given us this response:
Green Party policy is to promote cycling and reduce the use of motorised transport within cities. We would do this partly by improving provision for cyclists with dedicated lanes and road safety measures, but also by improving public transport options and reducing the cost of public transport to encourage people to leave their cars at home. This would bring down journey times by reducing congestion and would also improve air quality. I support all the measures you list and would like to add that many of our members are keen cyclists.
