Speed Limits: Cameras
Mr. Graham Stuart:
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how many speed cameras have been installed on public roads in each year since 1997, broken down by police authority area; and if he will make a statement. 
The Department only holds information about the number of safety camera sites (covering both fixed and mobile camera enforcement) operating within the National Safety Camera Programme for England and Wales which started in 2001 and ended on 31 March 2007. The information relates to partnership areas which may consist of more than one police force area.
28 Jan 2009 : Column 538W
The following table shows the number of speed camera sites operating within the national programme within each year using the "date established" supplied by the safety camera partnerships. Different areas entered the national programme on different dates, and in many cases had established camera sites before joining the programme which are not shown in the table.
Since 1 April 2007 the deployment of safety cameras has been the responsibility of individual local partnerships. The number of cameras in place since then will therefore be a matter for each individual partnership.
