A draft ID card Bill is to be published within a month, the Home Secretary said today.

David Blunkett told BBC Radio Five Live that the government intends to push ahead with controversial proposals for a biometric ID card scheme, despite a cabinet split and widespread opposition led by privacy activisits.

Last week Prime Minister Tony Blair said the government had overcome civil liberties concerns about ID cards. Only practical issues and logistics stood in the way of the introduction in ID cards in the UK, he said. ®
