HL Deb 15 October 1996 vol 574 c204WA
Lord Marlesford

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they intend to introduce procedures to enable the passports issued to United Kingdom citizens to be recalled for cancellation on the death of such citizens in order to prevent the improper transfer and use of passports of deceased persons.

Baroness Blatch

No. Security features are incorporated in United Kingdom passports to ensure that any attempts to facilitate their use by another person, through alteration of personal details or substitution of photographs, will be readily apparent on examination of the document.
