To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what criteria he has set to evaluate the success of his Department's pilot entitlement card scheme. 
§ Beverley Hughes
The Government have not announced that they will be piloting an entitlement card scheme. My hon. Friend is probably referring to press reports of a proposed UK Passport Service project to pilot the recording of facial recognition, fingerprint and iris image biometric information for passports and the proposed passport card. Discussions with short-listed suppliers are still continuing.
