5 October 2010: Lord Berkeley asked Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the effect on road accidents of their decision to phase out central funding of fixed speed cameras

during the course of the question ....... Lord Faulkner of Worcester: My Lords, the Minister will be aware, from his department's own figures, that the statistics on road casualties caused by speed are horrendous. Can he give an assurance that if, as a consequence of this decision to discontinue the funding of safety cameras, there is an increase in the number of accidents at the sites where those cameras were present, the Government will reconsider their policy and ensure that the cameras come back?
