Speed Limits: Cameras

Volume 487: debated on Tuesday 3 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many persons have been acquitted of speeding offences as a consequence of speed measure devices (a) not having been properly calibrated and (b) used by officers who have not received specialist training, in each of the last three years. (253004)

Statistical information collected centrally by my Department on the number of persons dealt with for offences of contravening speed limits does not identify the reason why the court, after hearing the evidence, decide the defendant is not guilty.
