There will be no net surplus for 2007/8. Under the new funding mechanism announced by the government in December 2005, Partnerships will no longer need to return a surplus to the Treasury (as has happened in the previous five years) from April 2007. Regardless of the number of fines issued in 2007/8 the London Safety Camera Partnership (LSCP) will receive a grant of £10.5M to fund the operation.
