Home Department written question – answered on 13th March 2007.
Alert me about debates like this
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what estimate he has made of the likely lifespan of the information chip in the new passport.
The Identity and Passport Service believe that the lifespan of the chip in the e-passport will match the full 10-year validity period of the e-passport, assuming the passport is subject to normal usage and levels of "wear and tear".
