Identity Management

Volume 696: debated on Wednesday 5 December 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

When they anticipate that the report from the Public-Private Forum on Identity Management, chaired by Sir James Crosby, will be published. [HL468]

Sir James Crosby was appointed to establish and chair the Public-Private Forum on Identity Management in July 2006 with a remit to produce a preliminary report to Ministers by Easter 2007. In March 2007 he discussed his preliminary conclusions with the then Chancellor of the Exchequer and was invited to work on with the forum to produce a fuller report later in the year. The report is now being finalised. It is expected to be delivered to Ministers later this year, as agreed with Sir James. No date has been fixed for publication, which may be later this year or next year.
