Identity Documents Bill
|Identity Documents Bill|
The Identity Documents Bill is a legislative programme that initiated by the Coalition Government and announced in the Queen's Speech on 25 May 2010 as being a law that mandated the scrapping of the ID card scheme introduced under New Labour in the aftermath of the attacks of 9/11. It also promised to destroy all related data that is kept in the National Identity Register.
The introduction of the Bill and its proposals to scrap ID cards is expected to save the UK £4.5 billion.
