Cyclist urged to share their views ahead of debate in Parliament

Cyclists are being invited to get in touch with their MP with suggestions about improving safety on the East End’s roads.

Poplar and Limehouse MP Jim Fitzpatrick is urging his constituents to get in touch ahead of scheduled a House of Commons debate on cycling.

“A personal view on cycle safety from local people will be an invaluable resource going into the debate,” he said.

“Instead of telling people what I’m going to say I want to hear from people and give constituents the chance be a part of this very important conversation on cycle safety.”

Mr Fitzpatrick can be contacted on social networking site Twitter (@FitzMP), through his website, or on under the subject ‘Cycle Safe’.
