Mistaken Identity


Mistaken Identity

On 18 May 2004 Privacy International organised a public meeting on the government’s proposed ID scheme.

A wide range of speakers appeared, although the Home Office neglected to send a representative to defend the scheme.

Audio recordings of the whole event are available here in MP3 and Ogg Vorbis flavours:
