Mr. Hoyle

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what funds are available for installation of CCTV cameras in villages. [142170]

Ms Blears

There are currently funds available for the installation of CCTV in all locations, including villages, under the Building Safer Communities Fund. The Building Safer Communities Fund is allocated by the Home Office to Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnerships to enable them to tackle local crime priorities through a number of interventions, including CCTV. For 2003–04 the Building Safer Communities Fund has provided Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnerships with £72.3 million.
