Think of the children!

Terri DowtyYesterday's LSE conference on children's databases went very well. You can listen to the speakers (including yours truly) and see their slides from the programme page, and also see some photos.

Meanwhile I am glad to see the Daily Mail is hyperventilating on the issue:

Shadow Education Secretary David Willetts said: 'We are going to have bar-coded babies. This project is going to cost £224m over the three years to 2008 with subsequent operating costs of £41m a year. Would it not be better to focus this money on families in real need?'
