HC Deb 30 October 1990 vol 178 c461W
Mr. Alton

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will make a statement on the use of cameras at busy junctions to catch motorists who jump red traffic lights.

Mr. Chope

In the White Paper "The Road User and the Law" (CMD 576) we accepted in principle the use of cameras to detect speeding and traffic light offences. Legislation to allow for more effective use of such equipment will be introduced at the earliest opportunity.
