Biometric Technology

Volume 451: debated on Tuesday 7 November 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills if he will list the uses for which biometric technologies are used in schools. (99245)

The Department does not keep a list of the uses of biometric technologies in schools. However I am aware that some schools use biometric technologies for recording the attendance and registration of pupils, and for access to school services such as libraries and school meals.
