HC Deb 08 May 1968 vol 764 c75W
59. Sir C. Mott-Radclyffe

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will now consider introducing legislation to make it compulsory for riders of all types of motor cycles to wear crash helmets.

Mr. Marsh

The majority of motor cyclists now wear safety helmets and I am therefore reluctant to make this a matter of compulsion. I hope we can persuade all motor cyclists to wear safety helmets and will continue with our publicity to this end.
