holding answer 26 February 2007

Bernard Herdan, Executive Director, Service Planning and Delivery for the Identity and Passport Service (IPS) responded substantively to the hon. Member for Bassetlaw on 23 January 2007.

Mr. Herdan wrote to the hon. Member again on 23 February, apologising that he had not addressed directly the issue of a meeting in his earlier letter and for failing to clearly explain that, in the circumstances, he did not feel that a meeting was necessary.

I am however happy to meet with the hon. Member if necessary. However I note that Mr. Gordon Wilson has now been issued a passport.
