Opposition Day — [6th allotted day]: National Insurance Numbers and Illegal Immigrants (16 Jan 2008)

Peter Hain: ...that someone whom one employs has a right to be in this country and has a right to work is not, in my view, asking too much. Neither is it "burdensome" or "unnecessary", as the Conservative party said it was when commenting on the legislation. To help to deal with illegal workers in future, we will further tighten the system by introducing identity cards for foreign nationals from the end...

Opposition Day — [6th allotted day]: National Insurance Numbers and Illegal Immigrants (16 Jan 2008)

Peter Hain: ...has stumbled into the Chamber this afternoon clutching a rehearsed question, but I have already given the answer and I will explain other aspects in a few moments. I was talking about compulsory identity cards for foreign nationals and it is worth noting that foreign nationals, the subject of today's debate, feature in the Conservative motion. Yet if Conservative Members had the power to...

Opposition Day — [6th allotted day]: National Insurance Numbers and Illegal Immigrants (16 Jan 2008)

Peter Hain: ..., presumably through deception, we will see whether any further checks and measures are necessary, particularly in the security industry cases. In that case, we hope that, unlike in respect of ID cards for foreign nationals, the hon. Gentleman will support us.

Opposition Day — [6th allotted day]: National Insurance Numbers and Illegal Immigrants (16 Jan 2008)

Peter Hain: Not for a moment. It is no good the hon. Member for Epsom and Ewell fulminating about illegal working when he wants to deprive Britain of an essential weapon—compulsory ID cards for foreign nationals—to defeat it. Lest we forget, I shall detail some of the other measures that the Opposition have felt unable to support on this matter: fines for hauliers who attempt to smuggle illegal...

Written Answers — Northern Ireland: Identity Cards (6 Mar 2007)

Peter Hain: I have not made any assessment of the likely cost of implementing the scheme in Northern Ireland because the cost of issuing ID cards along with passports is, as an excepted matter, a matter for my right hon. Friend the Home Secretary. The Northern Ireland Office and the Office of the First Minister and deputy First Minister are represented at official level on interdepartmental groups...

Written Answers — Northern Ireland: Identity Cards (5 Dec 2005)

Peter Hain: At this stage, the Northern Ireland Office does not plan to make any estimate of the cost of using the ID cards scheme to support the services which it oversees. The Identity Cards Bill makes clear that the use of the ID cards scheme by devolved administrations is a matter for them. The business case makes no assumptions that the scheme will be used for services which are the responsibility...

Business of the House (10 Mar 2005)

Peter Hain: ...will depend on the co-operation of both the Conservative and the Liberal Democrat Opposition. The country needs no reminding that the Labour party believes in the sensible, phased introduction of identity cards. We are moving in that direction anyway with passports and driving licences, and virtually everyone has to carry photographic ID to board an internal flight. I therefore hope that...

Business of the House (16 Oct 2003)

Peter Hain: If the hon. Gentleman gives me a moment, I shall tell him. Virtually all of us carry ID of some kind around with us. The development of driving licences and passports points in the direction of an identity card, and any such scheme should be considered in that context, including the issue of biometric data. As to whether it should be compulsory and how it should be funded, the Home Secretary...
