Volume 506: debated on Thursday 4 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what work (a) his Department, (b) the Identity and Passport Service and (c) each of his Department's other agencies has carried out with or for Project STORK in each of the last five years. (318710)

Project STORK started in June 2008 and the Identity and Passport Service is leading the UK contribution to the project. Some preparatory work was undertaken from 2007 until the formal start of the project. During this time work on the project has fallen into two phases. The first has been analysis and design to enable technical implementation and meet legal requirements. The second is the implementation of a number of pilot projects, starting later this year.
