Wednesday morning, Select Committee meeting to consider a second draft of our report on protection of Europe from large-scale cyber attacks. Hosted Bangladesh Major-General (retd) Ansa Amin for lunch.
Thursday, I spoke on an immigration order and regulations (www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/ld200910/ldhansrd/text/100304-0014.htm). The Minister, Lord West, didn't have many answers to my questions, and where he did venture an off the cuff reply, he got it wrong. Iris recognition technology, already in use at all major airports in gates allowing automatic entry, isn't less reliable than facial recognition technology, and my question about the need for a second set of gates based on the latter technology still remains.
