That this House recognises that walking can improve physical and mental health, provides opportunities for families to spend time together walking to school, encourages people to discover their local area, cuts carbon and can save people money; notes that the Living Streets National Walking month campaign takes place during May 2014 to inspire people to walk more; and calls on the Government to support Walk to School Week and Walk to Work Week, which encourage people of all ages to walk more when going about their daily activities.
