You reported that the deployment of eGates at UK airports was delayed pending John Vine's report on the Brodie Clark affair. The Home Office have in the past claimed that expenditure of public money on these devices is justified by their successful performance in trials at Manchester Airport [1,2]. After inspecting Manchester Airport, Mr Vine said in his report : "We could find no overall plan to evaluate the success or otherwise of the facial recognition gates at Manchester Airport and would urge the Agency to do so [as] soon as possible". In view of which, the Home Office will presumably now explain their reasoning before spending any more of the public's money on eGates.
