Public Bill Committee: Identity Documents Bill (29 Jun 2010)

Nigel Mills: The question I was asking was if just the 15,000 cards currently in existence were retained and were valid for 10 years, would anyone recognise them as a valid form of ID, given that people would be so unfamiliar with them?

Public Bill Committee: Identity Documents Bill (29 Jun 2010)

Nigel Mills: But they will only be of any use if the place you take them to actually recognises them as valid. If people in Nottingham have not seen one of these cards for two years, and you try to use one to prove your ID, might they not say, “I don’t recognise this thing.”

Public Bill Committee: Identity Documents Bill (29 Jun 2010)

Nigel Mills: But no one will want to go through trying to make them.

Public Bill Committee: Identity Documents Bill (29 Jun 2010)

Nigel Mills: I was trying to ask you whether you thought you would get full value. I had another question. I was looking through my wallet, thinking, “What would I not have to carry if I had an ID card,” but I could not actually find anything. From your experience, is there anything that you do not carry that you used to carry, now that you have your ID card?

Public Bill Committee: Identity Documents Bill (29 Jun 2010)

Nigel Mills: When you bought your card, did you think there were would be a review period that was less than 10 years?

Nigel Mills: It contrasts with you thinking that the card would be guaranteed to last for 10 years if you were conscious that there might be a review?

Public Bill Committee: Identity Documents Bill (29 Jun 2010)

Public Bill Committee: Identity Documents Bill (29 Jun 2010)

Nigel Mills: On that last point, could you actually achieve an effective voucher or something, without compromising all the data security about which you are concerned? Would not you necessarily need someone at the Passport and Records Agency to be able to check that the discount you were offering was valid—to do a cross-check?

Public Bill Committee: Identity Documents Bill (29 Jun 2010)

Nigel Mills: I have a second, not very, related question: do you actually think that an ID scheme with only 15,000 cards in existence can be an effective recognised scheme, or will people be so unfamiliar with it in four years’ time that they will not accept the cards as a form of ID even if they were, in theory, legally valid?

Written Answers — Transport: HGV Charging (17 Jun 2010)
