Hansard 26 April: Column 14

Government evidence showed that displacement of crime by the installation of closed circuit television security cameras was not an issue, home office minister Paul Boateng.

He added: 'However, CCTV has to be part of a whole package. There is no substitute for police-public partnerships or vigilance on the part of the public but, in conjunction with them, CCTV can, and does, make a real contribution'.

And, replying to Lindsay Hoyle, Labour MP for Chorley, he encouraged parish councils to bid for part of the£170m made available by government for new CCTV installations.
