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.
