To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what steps she is taking to certify that the police in London enforce the rules for cyclists in The Highway Code to the same standard applied to motorised vehicles.

It is important that cyclists know that the rules of the Highway Code and road traffic law apply equally to them as they do to other road users.

Enforcement of road traffic laws in London, including cycling offences, is an operational matter for both the Commissioners of the Metropolitan Police Service and the City of London Police in conjunction with their local policing plans.
