Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly.

Written response received on 13/03/13.

An Equality Impact Assessment was carried out for all investment detailed within the draft TfL Business Plan. This assessment considered the impact on each of the protected characteristics as identified in the Equality Act 2010.

The equality assessment looked at the whole business plan and the impact the plan has on TfL's ability to deliver an integrated transport network. Therefore, the associated cycling related programme is part of the Surface Transport section of the assessment. The equality impact assessment is due to be published on the TfL website this summer.

Perhaps the most important part of my Cycling Strategy is our wish to broaden cycling's gender, age, ethnic and social mix.
