Selaine Saxby (MP for North Devon) has been appointed co-chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Cycling and Walking (APPGCW) alongside Ruth Cadbury.

This news comes following the announcement that Flick Drummond, the previous co-chair of the APPGCW, has been appointed as a PPS.

Selaine worked for Ben Howlett MP and been active in Conservative circles for many years, and has good contacts with Government.

Currently the Group cannot hold a formal virtual meeting to approve her appointment due to Parliamentary procedure, but Selaine has been co-opted to the position by the APPGCW committee until a formal meeting can take place.

Ruth Cadbury said: "I warmly welcome Selaine to the All Party Group for Cycling and Walking. Her Government contacts and background in physical activity will be a great asset as cycling and walking is climbing up on the political agenda."

Selaine Saxby said: "I am delighted to be involved with the All Party Group for Cycling and Walking. As someone who regularly cycles and walks I look forward to working with colleagues to make the case for active travel at such a crucial time"
