§ 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.
