Identity Cards Bill — Compulsory registration when applying for a Passport — 18 Oct 2005 at 19:00
John Gummer MP, Suffolk Coastal voted in the minority (Aye).
The majority of MPs voted against altering a section of the Identity Cards Bill which says:
- When someone applies for a designated document, they must either apply to be entered into the National Identity Register, or prove they are already listed and update its contents.
so that the word "must" was replaced with the phrase "may, if the applicant so chooses".
Had this been passed, it could not be made compulsory to register for an ID card when renewing a passport, driving license, or other potentially "designated document".
