Dawn Butler: The Bill does not give the police any extra powers. However, does my hon. Friend agree that although the police will not be allowed to stop someone and request an ID card on spec, the Bill does not stipulate that they cannot stop someone and ask for biometrics on spec?

Dawn Butler: I want to talk about violence against women at stations. I have been running a safer stations campaign for about the past four weeks and I have been campaigning for all stations to be staffed from the first service to the last.
