Identity Cards: Databases

Volume 502: debated on Monday 7 December 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department which organisations were accredited under the Identity Cards Act 2006 to access data on the National Identity Register on 1 October 2009. (303816)

No organisation will have access to the information held on the National Identity Register. However, the Identity Cards Act 2006 does allow for information to be provided from the register in prescribed circumstances. The register was not in operation on 1 October 2009, and powers to provide information were not commenced until 20 October 2009.
