First class fingerprint service?

The UK Border Agency is to trial technology at 17 Crown Post Offices which are to offer fingerprint and photograph-taking facilities for foreign nationals who need to enrol for an ID card. Tests start next week.

Alan Johnson said: Identity cards have been issued to 90,000 foreign nationals, exceeding our target by 15,000, a month ahead of schedule.

Skilled migrants renewing their visas to stay in the UK will be issued with an ID card from the New Year, three months ahead of schedule.

We hope nothing gets lost in the post.
