Yesterday's final Get Britain Cycling enquiry session revealed that Prime Minister David Cameron has not been directly involved in discussions on cycling with key ministers, including Cycling Minister Norman Baker.

Echoing the words of CTC president Jon Snow at the enquiry, who said that "Political leadership is the most important factor in getting Britain cycling", Sustrans policy director Jason Torrance called on the Prime Minister to take the lead on cycling.

Torrance said: “The government must work together to deliver a bold vision for cycling under the leadership of the Prime Minister himself.

"The resounding message throughout this inquiry has been that leadership on cycling must come from the very top.

"The Prime Minister needs to take cycling to the top of the agenda and set out a plan that includes every element of government so we can all lead healthier, more active lives."
