§ Mrs. Curtis-Thomas
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement on CCTV programmes administered by the Government Office for the North West. 
§ Ms Blears
A potential £170 million will be spent funding 684 CCTV schemes across England and Wales under the Crime Reduction Programme CCTV Initiative.
The Government Office for the North West received funding of £22,800,000 for 95 CCTV schemes. All schemes are now operational, apart from the Liverpool Citysafe scheme which is due for completion in late summer 2003. A full list of these schemes is available on the crime reduction website at: http://www. crimereduction.gov.uk/cctvminisitel.htm.
Funding for a range of crime reduction interventions, including CCTV, is currently available to local Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnerships under the Building Safer Communities fund.
