trying to reform Labour's image. <br>'The populist view has consistently been that only criminals, or those with something to hide, would contest an increase in the use of cameras,' the report argued. <br>The Information Commissioner's Office has said that the Home Office spent 78 per cent of its crime prevention budget on installing CCTV during the 1990s. <br>More cameras were installed

convenient way to phase out train guards on the Underground because drivers could monitor what was happening on CCTV. <br>The Tube network now has 13,000 cameras of its own, not including 700 on the Docklands Light Railway and 600 on the London Overground. London's thousands of buses have also been fitted with their own surveillance systems since the 1980s.    <br>Today, much of London's suite of

[/news/scott-morrison/index.html Scott Morrison] insists a [/news/coronavirus/index.html coronavirus] vaccine will not be rolled out to Australians unless it's safe enough for his own children.
The prime minister on Sunday night talked up Australia's deals worth $3.5billion to buy and produce millions of doses of four vaccines if they are approved by regulators.
'All the four vaccines we've invested in are proving to be on track and were looking to have them distributed in the first quarter of next year,' he told [ ]. 
The Australian leader though said no vaccine would be distributed around Australia until authorities are 100 per cent certain it is safe for the public to use.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison has insisted a coronavirus vaccine will not be rolled out to Australians unless it's completely safe
The Australian leader said on Sunday night no vaccine would be distributed around Australia until authorities can be 100 per cent certain it is safe
'I want to assure Australians about the vaccines that are made available to them - they must be safe.
'There will be no compromises on safety and on health.
'That vaccine has to be good enough for my family to be good enough for everyone else and their families too.'
Mr Morrison previously said vulnerable and front line workers will be the first to receive the vaccine as soon as one is deemed to be safe.

The first doses are expected to arrive on December 28, but a decision on approval by the Therapeutic Goods Administration will take until late January.
He earlier this week revealed Australians who refuse to get a vaccine could be forced to quarantine for two weeks when they enter the country unless they have a 'genuine medical reason' not to get the jab.
The prime minister previously said a vaccine, which is expected to roll out in March, will be optional but the government will find ways to encourage people to take it.

Australians have been told they could be forced to quarantine for two weeks when they enter the country
Mr Morrison's comments came as the resumption of wild animal wet markets in Asia sparked a dire warning they could spark more pandemics across the globe.  
Covid-19 is believed to have originated and spread from animals to humans at a marketplace in Wuhan, in China's Hubei province
Environmental investigator Steven Galster went undercover in Bangkok's Chatuchak wildlife market in a 60 Minutes expose in March - claiming the filthy conditions had the potential to spark a 'second Wuhan'. 
The covert footage showed cramped cages full of blue-tongued lizards, iguanas, monkeys, Australian cockatoos, African meerkats, ferrets, rare tortoises, porcupines, snakes and skunks, among others.

Pictured: Bangkok's Chatuchak wildlife market has the potential to spark a 'second Wuhan', Mr Galster warned
On Sunday night, the anti-animal trafficking expert said the reopening of the market in the months since could spark another pandemic.  
'We need to ban the commercial trade of wild animals just the same way we banned slavery,' Mr Galster said.
'That's the point of history we're at right now - if we don't do that we're definitely going to have a pandemic and it could be much worse than this one.
'We were successful in closing it down but unfortunately they've re-opened.'   
Mr Galster has said in March animals lumped together in wet markets that are not normally in close contact in the wild are particularly vulnerable to viruses.
While being kept in squalid conditions at the markets, those viruses can leap to humans who handle them.  
Environmental investigator and human rights campaigner Steven Galster believes Chatuchak illegla wildlife market in Bangkok is 'Wuhan in the making'
Mr Galster said he believed Chatuchak was a 'Wuhan in the making'.
'It's a prescription for disaster, du lịch ba li all within this small, hot room ready to infect somebody,' he said.
Mr Galster said not just Chinese wildlife markets should be shut down, but also illegal trading hubs in Indonesia, Laos, Cambodia and Burma. 
The virus is suspected to have crossed to humans from the pangolin - a type of scaly anteater - which is the most trafficked wild animal in the world.
Alarming undercover footage revealed how overseas food markets are still selling 'high-risk' wildlife
'It's a wild animal that's been taken out of its natural environment, consumed in some way, come into contact with people in an unnatural way,' Mr Galster said.
'I think the pangolin… whose only defence is to curl up into a ball, has decided that conservationists weren't doing enough, it struck back itself.
'I think this is mother nature's revenge.

We're not surprised. We've been working on this for years, and we're trying to warn people that this is global. 
'There are sleeping time bombs across the region right now.'
