ID cards 'could increase identity theft'

The Conservatives have attacked the government's plans for identity cards, saying they could increase the risk of identity theft. epolitix

Shadow home secretary David Davis told MPs that ministers had exaggerated the justifications for introducing the ID card and reported that the database holding the information could be open to abuse.

"One of the FBI's leading identity fraud consultants said the ID card could be replicated by criminals perfectly in six months. In order for the House to be absolutely sure, can the minister guarantee that the ID card will be 100 per cent secure against fraud? Yes or No?"

Joan Ryan claimed it would be a "ridiculous contention" to say that "anything was 100 per cent secure".
