Closed-Circuit Television

Volume 691: debated on Tuesday 24 April 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What assessment they have made of the number and use of closed-circuit television cameras in public places. [HL2997]

The Home Office does not collect figures for the number of CCTV cameras. Given the huge number of cameras, operated by a very wide range of individuals, private organisations and public bodies, it is very difficult accurately to assess the total number employed.
