Two replies in.

At this point I have had replies from the Liberal Democrat and Labour candidates. One gave the wrong answer, but did say it was a was his initial reaction and that he could be persuaded. Obviously the persuasion is in his inbox, however if he had remained the only reply I would have voted for him because he bothered to reply, had thought about the issue and seemed open to an alternative view if one was presented.
However the winner so far it the Labour Candidate who gave a 100% correct answer:
Thank you for emailing your question about cycle helmets.
I am a keen advocate of cycling. I cycle to and from work most days - it's reliable, cheap and gives me much needed exercise. Whilst I choose to wear a helmet I am not convinced that they are so beneficial that they should be made mandatory - so the answer to your question is "no". As your MP, my prioirty (sic) would be to support policies that encourage more people to enjoy cycling e.g. incentives for Surrey County Council to have better designated cycle lanes, rather than penalise cyclists.
So unless there is a late reply from the other candidates that somehow beats that he has my vote.
