The design for the new identity card has been unveiled by Home Secretary Jacqui Smith. Each card will carry a picture and a chip holding the person's name and date of birth, fingerprint records and other biometric data. It will also detail the holder's visa status and right to work. The cards will be issued to foreign nationals from November and from next year to people working in airports and other high security jobs.
