Biometric Technology

Volume 451: debated on Wednesday 8 November 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what meetings Ministers in his Department have had with companies who have an interest in biometric technology in the last 12 months. (99244)

No Ministers in the Department for Education and Skills have held discussions on biometric technology with any private or public companies. I am the only Minister to have met organisations with a potential interest in biometric technology when sectoral skills issues were the purpose of the meetings. Biometric technology was not discussed on those occasions.
