HC Deb 06 May 1993 vol 224 c179W
Mr. Luff

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what recent representations he has received about a national identity card scheme; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Jack

Some 27 individual letters have been received from Members of Parliament and others so far this year. None has persuaded me that the advantages of such a scheme outweigh the disadvantages.
