A negative low-field magnetoresistance is reported for the nondegenerate two-dimensional electron gas on the surface of bulk liquid helium. The behaviour is observed at temperatures of about 2 K and is interpreted as a manifestation of weak localisation. Preliminary results indicate that the effect becomes larger for lower electron densities, suggesting that electron-electron scattering contributes to the dephasing mechanism.
