Identity cards

Signed Early Day Motion 263 Identity Cards 06 June 2005

That this House believes that a convincing case for the introduction of compulsory biometric identity cards and a national database has not been made, that the risks involved far outweigh any discernible benefit, that the introduction of identity cards will fundamentally change the relationship between the citizen and the state, diminish personal privacy and threaten civil liberties, that the present proposals do not provide properly costed, proportionate or effective solutions to the problems they are claimed to solve; and calls upon the Government to shelve plans for their introduction.


2007-05-05 - SNP press release - SNP Call for Alexander Resignation
Author: Angus Robertson MP
Summary: SNP MP Angus Robertson, who was the SNP’s campaign director for the Scottish Parliament elections, today (Tuesday) called for the resignation of the Secretary of State for Scotland, Douglas Alexander, following Thursday's voting fiasco. ... "Concerns over the ballot paper, and over holding both elections on the same day have been raised by the SNP at various stages during the consultation. The fact that the original ballot paper had to be shrunk to fit into the electronic counting machines show how disorganised the entire process was, and led to many voters being unable to read the instructions."
