ID card technology not ready yet

The UK government's chief information officer has admitted that the technology needed for biometric identity cards is far from ready. His solution is to roll it out to groups such as "scoutmasters, teachers and school governors" -- all of whom will no doubt be delighted to be used as biometric guinea pigs. Should do wonders for recruitment. Perhaps the government should wait until the technology is actually ready before bringing forward the legislation?
