Alert me about debates like this
asked Her Majesty's Government:
What is their estimate of the cost of capital equipment invested in automatic number plate registration technology nationally from 1993 to the current date by both the police and the Home Office.
The Home Office has, since 1993, made a total capital investment of £37.15 million for the police use of automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) technology.
Police forces are responsible for managing their own budgets and expenditure therefore it is not possible to state how much capital they have invested in ANPR during the same period.
