According to Private Eye no. 1135:
"Atos's contract to do pre-bill ID card work suggests it stands a good chance of winning a share of the contract bonanza when ID cards finally become law. The firm certainly has good links with Labour. Former Labour cabinet minister Lord Barnett chairs Atos Origin (UK), and Atos also helps fund the Labour-friendly think tank the IPPR... Atos was also behind the troubled "E-Booking" scheme for the NHS."Jack Whitham, 13 years ago.
