Conservative promises

Conservative promises to scrap ID cards, the National Identity Register and ContactPoint, to remove many innocent people from the DNA database and to strengthen privacy and data protection are to be warmly welcomed and praised.

However, we would like a little more detail, such as whether our fingerprints are to be on future passports and what information is to be held on the passport database. Also there is no mention of the EU dimension and the proposed European Citizen Card and European e-ID. See here.
