The Week: Advertising News - ID card marketing blasted

The Conservative Party has criticised the marketing activity for the Government's ID cards scheme as a waste of taxpayers' money. The Identity and Passport Service is to launch a campaign, featuring animated fingerprint characters, to businesses this week.

The consumer campaign will follow next year.
