National Identity Register

Volume 461: debated on Monday 18 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what assessment he has made of the effect of omissions and errors in the postcode address file on the proposed national identity scheme; and if he will make a statement. (135844)

It is proposed that the national identity scheme will make use of the postcode address file as a method of address validation. However, it will not be the sole source of validation and provisions will be made to permit non-PAF compliant addresses to be recorded appropriately.
