UK General Election 2019

With virtually all cycling-related policy now a Scottish rather than a UK responsibility we are not asking individual candidates for statements or holding a hustings for the UK General Election. However, as always, we tell you which candidates are Spokes members and we give links to useful further information.

Candidates who are Spokes members

Once full lists are published for Edinburgh and Lothians constituences we will check them carefully, but please let us know at once if you spot any omissions.  At the 2017 general election only 2 candidates were Spokes members, but we are pleased to see 4 already this time!  As always, we only list candidates who were Spokes members at the time the election was called.

We do not endorse candidates.   The choice is yours.

Other useful sites (forthcoming we hope!)

It’s early days but in 2017 there were useful UK election blogs from Campaign for Better Transport and Sustrans so these may appear again.

There was also a great open source website called Your Next MP covering candidates in all UK constituencies with contact info for most candidates and known hustings for each constituency.
