Identity Cards Bill — Report of Costs and Benefits — 16 Jan 2006 at 17:22

The majority of the House of Lords voted to add a new provision[1] to the Identity Cards Bill which would have said:[2]

  • Before the Identity Cards laws can be enforced, the Government must publish a detailed report stating all the costs of the system since 2004 and a cost estimate by year for the next ten years, and a statement of the expected benefits of the system.

The majority of MPs in the House of Commons subsequently voted to remove this requirement from the proposed law.[3]
