Ports: Automatic Number Plate Recognition

Volume 475: debated on Tuesday 29 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if she will take steps to install number plate recognition systems at all major British ports. (200676)

I have been asked to reply.

It is not possible, for reasons of operational security, to divulge the current level of automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) systems currently in use at British ports. It is however, the Government's intention to ensure that ANPR systems are installed in all major British ports in the future, subject to the necessary funding being made available.
