My Department has regular discussions with the Treasury at Ministerial and official levels on this and other matters, and will continue to make the case for sufficient funding to achieve the aims of the Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy. A detailed report will be laid before Parliament later this year setting out the steps the Government has been taking to deliver the commitments set out in the Strategy, and the progress that is being made towards its targets.
