Identity Cards Bill — Recommittal to Select Committee — 18 Oct 2005 at 16:22
Alun Michael MP, Cardiff South and Penarth voted with the majority (No).
Those voting Aye were trying to recommit the Identity Cards Bill to a Select Committee. Recommittal means that the details of the Bill would again be subject to line-by-line scrutiny, as it was earlier in the Standing Committee. A Select Committee is, however, able to take external evidence and write a report which balances the views of all of its members. The Select Committee report, published on 20 July 2004, on the Identity Cards Bill which did not complete its passage in the previous Parliamentary session is here.
