Federal access card attracts plenty of interest

The Federal Government's Access Card Consumer and Task Force has recieved 70 submissions and completed two months of meetings with 50 consumer and privacy organisations on issues raised in its first discussion paper.

Submissions haven't yet been released by the Task Force but Victorian Privacy Commissioner Paul Chadwick on his last day before leaving office put these observations (submission dated 28 July) on the public record and gave the Task Force plenty to think about.

Meanwhile in the UK the House of Commons Science and Technology Committee is concerned about the way the UK Government is planning the proposed implementation of ID cards, citing an overemphasis on biometrics and limited input on other technology issues.
