ID card consultation figures

·

Beverly Hughes, Minister for Citizenship and Immigration, 28 Apr 2003:

We published a consultation paper on entitlement cards and identity fraud on 3 July 2002. We are at the moment making a detailed assessment of the 2,000 responses received to the consultation exercise, which ended on 31 July. Many organisations and individuals have expressed support for a card scheme, and that has been backed up by other research on the public's views...

STAND:
