§ Mr. Ieuan Wyn Jones
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what representations he has received regarding a national young person's identity card; and if he will make a statement. 510W
§ Mr. George Howarth
Hon. Members, members of the public and other interest groups make regular representations to me for and against national identity cards, and with various purposes in mind including reducing under-age sales. However, the issues go wider than that. We are considering the options, but have no current plans to introduce a national identity card scheme.
