In a statement following the meeting, Baroness Vere said: “I thank the representatives of the Motorcycle Action Group for the meeting on Wednesday, and the case they made for motorcycling.
“I feel there are a number of areas where MAG and the Government can work more closely together in order to raise the profile of motorcycling and improve outcomes for riders.
“I have asked MAG to provide me with a list of their top five priorities and look forward to reviewing these.”
Following the meeting, MAG will now be surveying members about their preferences to build the priority list.
MAG’s National Committee will collate and agree the final list at its next meeting.
Selina Lavender, MAG’s Chair, will then submit the list to the Minister in late February.
Selina Lavender said: “I am delighted by the spirit of the Minister’s desire to make positive change for riders.
“We cannot claim to have achieved everything our hearts desire, as our expectations must remain reasonable, but we have been given a great opportunity to get real results for motorcyclists.
“I thank the Baroness for her time and willingness to make this offer.”
