Identity Cards Bill — Access to the National Identity Register — 18 Oct 2005 at 17:30
Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset voted in the minority (Aye).
The majority of MPs voted against inserting the phrase "who reasonably require proof" to the end of a sentence taken approximately from the proposed law, which says:
- The statutory purposes of the National Identity Register are to facilitate a convenient method for such individuals to prove registrable facts about themselves to others ().
By leaving this out, they make it clear that there will be no limitation whatsoever on the uses the National Identity Register will be put to.
