Lord Russell of Liverpool (Crossbench)
To ask Her Majesty’s Government what plans they have to publish (1) the criteria that they will use to determine whether, and on what basis, they will legalise the use of e-scooters following the current trials, and (2) the specification for the data they have required local authorities to collect in association with those trials, to inform their decisions about whether and how to legalise their use.
To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment was made of the equalities impacts of their decision to increase the speed, power and weight limits of e-scooters involved in trials, as compared with those originally proposed in their consultation on such trials.
To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether they will set lower regulatory limits for the maximum speed, power and weight limits of e-scooters if the current trials suggest that these are too high in relation to their impacts on (1) road safety, (2) environmental outcomes, (3) physical activity levels, or (4) other impacts.
To ask Her Majesty’s Government what plans they have to publish any assessment made of the legal implications of their advice to local authorities planning to hold e-scooter trials that such authorities should convert cycle tracks to cycle lanes in those areas so that e-scooters can be permitted to use them.
