star this property answer text <p>Neither the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) nor the Department can offer any financial assistance to operators whose vessels may be affected by these increased safety measures. It is not normal practice for the Government to compensate individuals or companies for changes brought about by enhancements in safety legislation. To do so would set a challenging precedent.</p><p>I have asked that the MCA look to achieve a fair balance between proportionality for operators and public safety. However, public safety will always take precedence over all other considerations.</p><p> </p> more like this

The Department also undertook a major cycling and walking safety review in 2018, and published its response and a detailed action plan in November 2018. Around £2 billion is now being invested in cycling and walking over this Parliament. To encourage people to cycle to work, the Government’s Cycle to Work Scheme allows employers to loan cycles and cyclists' safety equipment to employees as a tax-free benefit. The Department is reviewing and updating its guidance on the scheme and is due to publish a revised version later in 2019.</p><p> </p> more like this
