Abstract

The original amendment on cost information, put forward in the House of Lords, sought to address a widely held concern about the government’s unwillingness to be open about the likely costs associated with implementing the identity cards scheme. These concerns are shared by some in the Lords, industry and by the LSE, whose initial alternative costings fuelled the concerns of the Lords over the limited information made available to them. The proposed amendment for the House of Commons does not seek to address this underlying issue and, indeed, the provisions of clause 4, are likely to repeat the same, unnecessary secrecy that the Lords were seeking to explore.
