UK releases responses to consultation on digital identity

The UK government has shared responses received following a call for evidence on digital ID. The government says that after the call in July 2019, over 100 organisations responded, giving perspectives on questions such as who should take a lead role in developing the ID, ID uses as well as a regulatory framework. The government lists online security, personalised services, increasing productivity and boosting the economy as among objectives  for the ID. It has also committed to further consultations on the project.
