submitted to limit the Schengen stolen vehicles that are included within the ANPR pool to 3 
months of data in line with UK stolen vehicles.  If this is not done the level of impact on UK

asap.  It is recognised that depending on the time taken for development Schengen may 
not be implemented in current ANPR systems and may only be linked to the NAS.
