ID Cards

Asked if the Prime Minister recognised that the change of approach on ID cards to be announced by the Home Secretary was bordering on a u-turn, the PMS replied that he had lost track of the number of assumptions underlying the question, as there seemed to be quite a few. The Government would not accept this characterisation of the Home Secretary s speech at all.

Put that it was clearly a dilution of the implementation from what was announced six months ago, the PMS replied that he did not accept that at all. We had always said that this would be a phased implementation and we remained on track with our delivery plan.

Asked if the Prime Minister was confident that by 2017 most people in Britain would have an ID card or in some cases a biometric passport, the PMS replied that the Prime Minister was confident that the commitments that we had entered into would be delivered on.
