The company that makes British passports will challenge the decision to use a foreign firm in future, a government decision that some euroskeptics in the tabloid press have called unpatriotic.But reports that Franco-Dutch firm Gemalto, rather than Britain's De La Rue, had won the tender to produce them angered some Britons and the Daily Mail said more than 270,000 people had signed its petition demanding the contract go to a British company.Gemalto, which already produces British driving licenses, has not confirmed or denied it won the contract, but De La Rue has publically criticized the decision to use a foreign firm.
