Letter: Protecting our private identities

Click to follow
Sir: Dr Law suggests that in the debate about identity cards the imaginative leap from the NHS card and its registration number to ID card has not been made. However, for some of us there really is a connection between identity cards and the NHS. As a baby born in the immediate aftermath of the Second World War, I was issued with a national registration identity card. The numbers on my identity card and my NHS card are identical.

Yours faithfully, GORDON FYFE Newcastle under Lyme, Staffordshire 19 October
