Motion to Approve
That this House regrets the Government’s decision to proceed with the draft Identity Cards Act 2006 (Information and Code of Practice on Penalties) Order 2009, the draft Identity Cards Act 2006 (Provision of Information without Consent) Regulations 2009, the draft Identity Cards Act 2006 (Fees) Regulations 2009, the draft Identity Cards Act 2006 (Prescribed Information) Regulations 2009 and the draft Identity Cards Act 2006 (Application and Issue of ID Card and Notification of Changes) Regulations 2009 before the case for continued investment in the identity cards project has been put to the British people at a general election. 19th Report from the Merits Committee.
My Lords, I rise to move the Motion standing in my name on the Order Paper, which regrets the Government’s intention to implement these instruments. I believe that they should not be implemented and I therefore beg to test the opinion of the House.
