Sir: The latest terrorist attack in the City must provide a further powerful reason for introducing identity cards. While it would clearly not be the complete answer to the problem, it would be another factor to make concealment harder for the terrorist, as it would then be just a little more difficult to merge into the background of society, which is what the potential terrorist seeks to do. And before the cry of infringement of human rights goes up, what about the right to go about one's daily business in safety?

Yours faithfully,
