Lib Dem MP Julian Huppert, a co-chair of the All Party Parliamentary Cycling Group (APPCG) which produced the ‘Get Britain Cycling’ report, secured tonight's debate. The debate follows the announcement of some additional cash, and a statement from the Prime Minister earlier in the month.

Last week the Government published its response to the Get Britain Cycling report. CTC believes the Government needs to go much further in providing long-term funding at £10 per head for everyone, not just the residents of 8 cities.

Together with other cycling organisations, CTC's has produced a briefing in preparation for the debate. You can watch it live on BBC Parliament, on the Parliament website.
