"Biometric chips in [UK] passports by 2005"

From this:

The UK Passport Service (UKPS) has confirmed plans to put biometric chips into passports by 2005...

The UKPS plans to run a six-month trial with a systems integrator to "evaluate issues around biometric capture using iris, facial recognition and fingerprints to support the passport card development programme".

This post has links to my other posts about biometrics, iris scanning, etc.
