The proposed ID card scheme will not contribute to the "required"* biometric passport it only adds to the cost, massively. The actual requirement is far less costly to implement that what the Government want to spend our money on.
*In fact the far less ambitious plans for the EU biometric passport have already been determined to be unworkable by a technical committee set up to do the feasability study for the Council of Ministers.
