Local Authorities: Closed Circuit Television

Volume 475: debated on Tuesday 6 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what (a) guidance has been produced and (b) amendments are planned on the use of CCTV by local authorities. (202623)

I have been asked to reply.

No guidance has been produced, nor have any amendments been planned to local authorities on the use of closed-circuit television (CCTV). The Home Office published the National CCTV Strategy last year, and a National CCTV Strategy Programme Board has been established. The programme board is reviewing the recommendations of the strategy and Ministers will have the opportunity to approve the work of the board later this year.
