What further consideration has been given to the introduction of a National Identity Card Scheme, voluntary or mandatory, following the issue of the 1995 Green Paper Identity Cards: a consultation document(Cm 2879) and the Report of the House of Commons Home Affairs Committee in 1996 (HC172 Session 1995–96). [HL1709]
§ Lord Williams of Mostyn
Policy on a national identity card is kept under review but the Government have not yet reached any firm conclusions about the merits of such a scheme.
