Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the capabilities and intent of (a) foreign intelligence agencies, and (b) foreign law enforcement agencies to gain unauthorised access to the National Identity Register; and whether they have assessed whether such agencies will have the capabilities and intent to gain unauthorised access to it in the future.

We are constantly assessing the security of the National Identity Service, taking advice from a number of services, including CESG, and acting accordingly to mitigate any assessed risk.
