§ Mr. Denis Murphy
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many representations have been received on entitlement cards from(a) individuals and (b) organisations. 
§ Beverley Hughes
The consultation period on entitlement cards and identity fraud formally ended on 31 January 2003. We received a total of 4,942 individual responses from companies/organisations and from individual members of the public, broken down as follows:
- Individuals: 4,766
- Organisations: 176
A further 5,031 responses from individual members of the public were sent in via the STAND website.
These responses have been counted in the same way as other inspired samples or surveys of opinion which by their nature cannot be representative of the population as a whole.
We have been carefully analysing all the responses received and are in the process of preparing a detailed summary of the responses which will be publishing.
