Speed Limits: Cameras

Volume 458: debated on Thursday 15 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what revenue was generated by police speed camera operations in each Police Service of Northern Ireland district command unit area in each of the last six years. (125015)

The following table outlines the revenue generated each year by the Safety Camera Scheme since its introduction in July 2003. The figures have been broken down by district command unit as requested. Revenue from all fixed penalty notices and conditional offers is paid to the Court Service. However, there is a mechanism to ‘Cost Recover’ funds generated by the scheme to cover its running costs. Any surplus funds then go to Treasury along with all the other fines received from penalty notices issued outside of the scheme.
