Mr. Frank Field: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what steps the Government plans to take in response to the judgment of the House of Lords in Rothwell v. Chemical and Insulating Company Ltd; and if he will make a statement. 
Maria Eagle: There are no guidelines on the minimum pixel density of closed circuit television (CCTV) used in courts. CCTV is used to cover both internal and external areas of courts; the coverage provided varies according to the work of the court and its status. Coverage has evolved over time with a variety of systems and types of cameras being used.
Guidance to courts on the use of CCTV has been revised and the new version will be issued shortly and stresses the need for any system to deliver recognition (of persons and objects) and notes that developments in technology may bring changes in the types of equipment used.
Advice on the use of CCTV is part of the policy document, Safe and Secure, which sets out guidance and practice on security issues for HMCS; this is revised annually and, as a Restricted document, is not available to the general public.

Her Majestys Courts Service is giving consideration to the routine collection of data relating to interpreting and translation services used in court.
