§ Mr. Michael
Closed circuit television (CCTV) Challenge Competitions have been held in 1994–95, 1996–97 and 1997–98. There was no competition in 1995–96 so I have given figures for the three years for which there have been competitions. In all three rounds, bids were invited from local partnerships. Bidding partnerships did not necessarily have local authority involvement. We are not able to identify bids which have local authority involvement but which have not been led by a local authority. There are some 760 bids which have not named a local authority as the lead partner. Numbers of successful and unsuccessful bids where a local authority was specified as the lead organisation are detailed in tables, copies of which have been placed in the Library.
