Identity Cards Bill — convenience of registering — 12 Dec 2005 at 19:20
Lord Davies of Oldham voted with the majority (Teller for the Not-Contents).
The Contents failed to change Paragraph 5(5)(a) of the Identity Cards Bill which outlined what the Secretary of State could require a person to do for the process of entering his data into the National Identity Register
Paragraph 5(5) says:
The things that an individual may be required to do... are (a) to attend at a specified place and time; (b) to allow his fingerprints, and other biometric information about himself, to be taken and recorded; (c) to allow himself to be photographed; (d) otherwise to provide such information as may be required by the Secretary of State.
The amendment would have changed part (a) to read: "to attend at his convenience at a specified place and time".
