Identity Documents Bill

Part of the debate – in a Public Bill Committee at 10:43 am on 29th June 2010.

Alert me about debates like this

Shami Chakrabarti: I remain sad that this card was sold. The Minister is right, I do not know the profiles of the people who have the cards—in terms of income and so on—but I do know that the card was pushed very heavily and talked about in schools. Ministers visited schools for some reason. There was a big push in parts of the north of the country. That made me very sad at the time, but I hope that those people will find more proportionate forms of identity service.
