The Knesset Science and Technology Committee is due to hold another discussion on Monday about the controversial Inclusion of Biometric Identifying Features in Identity Documents and a Data Bank bill.

Committee chairman Meir Sheetrit hopes to approve the bill for second and third readings in time for the final approval by the Knesset plenum before the summer recess, which starts at the end of the week.

The bill calls for scrapping the old identity cards and passports and issuing new ones that include digital renderings of biometric features, including two fingerprints and the contours of the face.
