2015 UK General Election (May)
The May 2015 election in the UK includes a big push by campaigners for election candidates to sign up for ‘Space for Cycling‘ and for their parties to include clear statements on what they will do to ‘Get Britain Cycling‘.
To assist with that, people are encouraged to write to each candidate and ask them to ‘VoteBike‘ (run by the CTC).
- The Telegraph: General election 2015: which party should cyclists vote for?
- CTC: Election manifestos: what do they promise for cycling?
- The Guardian: Which party’s manifesto is strongest on cycling?
- The Times: The #cyclesafe manifesto guide
Candidates in the North West Hampshire constituency were asked directly whether they support CTC’s 6 themes of ‘Space for Cycling’ noting that the first recommendation of the ‘Get Britain Cycling‘ inquiry called for funding of £10 per person per year, rising to £20 (it is presently around £1.37), see:
