from the department of claiming that banning cycling when not wearing a helmet could lead to more people cycling

Questions to the Secretary of State for Transport about Cyclists, Hansard 13 January 1997.

Mrs Gwyneth Dunwoody (Crewe and Nantwich)
Would it not be a good way of ensuring that more mothers were confident about allowing their children to ride to school if we put money into research into safety, particularly of children? Perhaps we ought to look at the provision of cycle helmets on a mandatory basis. Before any decisions are taken, should we not assess the practical steps that the Government can take to keep children safe on the roads?
