Identity Cards Bill — 20 Dec 2004 at 21:59

Dai Havard MP, Merthyr Tydfil and Rhymney voted with the majority (Aye).

The Aye-voters sent the Identity Card Bill into the next stage of the Parliamentary progress, the Standing Committee.

After the Standing Committee has read it, it reports its recommended changes back to the House and, after the Third Reading, the Bill goes to the House of Lords and then into law.
