Identity Cards Bill — Second Reading — 28 Jun 2005 at 21:50

The Aye-voters agreed that the Identity Cards Bill should be "Read a Second Time".

This means it can now be sent to Standing Committee D, which is a small group of MPs who formally review the bill line by line before it is returned to the main chamber for the "Third Reading" debate. Once the "Third Reading" is passed with a vote, it is reviewed by the House of Lords before it formally becomes an Act in law.

The timetable for this process is specified by the next vote. The following vote after that is the "money resolution", which gives the formal authority to the government to spend the public money necessary to carry out the functions of the act.

Note to readers: This is virtually the same Bill that was introduced to Parliament on 20 December 2004 but which ultimately failed due to the timing of the General Election.
