The House of Commons has voted on a Motion to Disagree with the Lords Message and Amendments to the Identity Cards Bill 2005, in the latest round of Parliamentary Ping Pong:
Ayes 284 Noes 241
The Bill is now heading back to the Lords again, presumably for another vote tonight.
Will the Lords change their Amendments, or will they re-present the current "compromise" which, unfortunately, concedes the principle of "compulsion by stealth" via the linkage between the Passports and the National Identity Register centralised biometric database, but after 2012 i.e. after the next General Election ?
