Identity Cards Bill — Applications relating to entries in Register — 13 Feb 2006 at 18:45

The majority voted to reverse the change made to the Identity Cards Bill by the House of Lords, which had replaced the word "must" with "may, if he chooses" in the following section

Where an individual applies for a designated document he must either apply to be entered in the National ID Register or, if he is already entered, confirm and correct the contents of his entry.[1]
This was precisely the same issue as the vote in the House of Commons the previous October.[2]
