Last week Richard Guest was in London giving evidence to the UK Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology. This was for a briefing document produced for parliamentarians on the topic of biometrics, through the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology (POST). POST is a Parliamentary office (independent of Government) that provides balanced and impartial advice to MPs and peers.
The contribution joins research being conducted across academia, industry, government and the third sector to get a better understanding of biometric technologies and the challenges, issues and benefits that they present. The result will be a 4-page POSTnote giving an overview of biometrics and the policy issues it raises.
