HC Deb 10 July 1964 vol 698 c151W
Mr. G. M. Thomson

asked the Minister of Transport if he has now completed his evaluation of the special safety helmet campaign he conducted last year; if he will publish the results; and if he will now introduce legislation making the wearing of safety helmets by motorcyclists compulsory.

Mr. Marples

The results of an analysis by the Road Research Laboratory of the counts of motor-cyclists wearing safety helmets made before, during, and after the campaign are now being studied. In the light of this study I hope soon to be in a position to decide whether it is desirable to make regulations requiring motor-cyclists to wear safety helmets.
