Sean McGovern (Letters, January 29), charges the Irish Council for Civil Liberties (ICCL) with "missing the point" on the Government's proposals for a public service identity card.
I hope he will be reassured to know that the ICCL is currently completing a report on private life in Ireland, which will highlight a range of threats to privacy, including the Government's recent public service/ID card proposals.
He also refers to the ICCL's position on home defence.
