HC Deb 20 May 1965 vol 712 cc270-1W
69. Mr. Tilney

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many police authorities use television cameras for crime prevention and detection; and what steps he is taking to encourage such use.

Mr. George Thomas

My right hon. and learned Friend understands that only one police force is using television cameras in this way. He is keeping in close touch with the experiment through the Home Office Police Research and Planning Branch, but a considered assessment cannot yet be made.
