HC Deb 08 September 2003 vol 410 cc279-80W
Mr. Whittingdale

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what action he will take to reclaim from local partnerships money paid in fines as a result of convictions for speeding based on evidence from speed cameras which are not (a) properly identified and (b) positioned in accordance with Government guidelines; and if he will make a statement. [128089]

Mr. Jamieson

The rules and guidelines relating to the safety camera netting-off programme have no bearing on the prosecution process. Where camera partnerships fail to meet visibility and conspicuity rules they may be suspended from the scheme and payments withheld.
