§ Mr. Favell
To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security, pursuant to his answer to the hon. Member for Stockport dated 6 March, whether plastic national insurance cards are capable of being adapted for use in cash dispensing machines.
§ Mr. Peter Lloyd
Whether the plastic national insurance number card has the capacity to be adapted to this purpose has not been tested, but we have already made it clear that there are no plans to consider such a use for the card.
