Identity Cards Bill — Third Reading — 18 Oct 2005 at 21:59
John Penrose MP, Weston-Super-Mare voted in the minority (No).
The majority of MPs voted to give the Identity Cards Bill its Third Reading. This means it now gets discussed by the House of Lords, where, if it is passed unchanged, it becomes law as an Act of Parliament.
If the Lords do make any changes, then it returns to the House of Commons where the MPs almost always revert them.
