Government to scrap ContactPoint

14th May 2010

The Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government has announced it is to scrap the children’s database ContactPoint.

ContactPoint will be scrapped alongside the ID card scheme, the National Identity Register and the next generation of biometric passports in what the coalition agreement describes as “a full programme of measures to reverse the substantial erosion of civil liberties under the Labour Government and roll back state intrusion.” ContactPoint was launched by Labour in January 2009 to provide demographic data on every child in the country, plus the name and address of any professional working with them.
