ID Cards

Asked whether the Prime Minister was considering shelving the role-out of ID cards, the PMS replied that there had been no change on the Government’s position on ID cards. There had been one newspaper report on Sunday and the Home Office had made clear that there was nothing to substantiate it. Asked if the report was "garbage," the PMS said that he did not want to use such language, but the Government had been denying those suggestions quite forcefully.

Asked on the report in the Guardian saying there was to be a review on the technology used, the PMS reiterated that the position on ID cards had not changed. The PMS added that these things were kept constantly under review as people would expect, but nothing had changed in regards to ID cards.

Asked whether the Prime Minister had ordered any fresh review into the technology since he became Prime Minister, the PMS said he was not aware of any review.
