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