I quote from the UKPA website, Matt:
"For many UK citizens the identity card will be issued as passports come up for renewal or for first time applications. The Home Office, the UKPS and other government departments will now start to lay the foundations for the scheme, which will establish a more secure means of proving people´s identity. As part of this process, the UKPS will progress its major anti-fraud and secure identity initiatives inlcuding the addition of a biometric to the British passport."
I don't believe much that this Government tells me, but when they say in black and white that "For many UK citizens the identity card will be issued as passports come up for renewal" I'll get in there and get a new passport without any form of chip, thank you very much.Tony Walton, 14 years ago.
