ID Cards - What the papers say

Government confusion over ID card data sales

The government's plans for ID cards were in turmoil last night after ministers denied a report in the Independent on Sunday that details of all 44m British adults holding ID cards would be sold to private companies in an attempt to offset the cost of their introduction, which the paper claimed could be up to GBP 750 per card. The government has denied it intends to sell the data.
