HC Deb 15 November 1973 vol 864 c219W
31. Sir Clive Bossom

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will ascertain how many VASCAR (Visual Average Speed Computer and Recorder) devices are now in use by the Essex police; and which other counties are proposing to adopt this new method of detection.

Mr. Carlisle

I understand that the Essex and Southend-on-Sea Joint Constabulary have at present three VASCAR instruments in operational use and that most other police forces in England and Wales are considering the purchase of one or more.
