There was an initial public consultation about Identity Cards the results of which prompted the Home Office to publish in the draft Identity Cards Bill their proposals for legislation. There will be a further period of consultation and feasibility testing before legislation is introduced finally into Parliament.
I am concerned that the issues of Identity Cards and security are not truly understood by the majority of the public. This lack of understanding could result in an uninformed decision being made on an issue that will have a major impact on the future of British society.
The following thesis is designed to allow the reader to become better informed about the proposed Identity Card scheme and then draw his or her own conclusions.
