ID Card cost already £32million

February 24, 2006 10:04 AM

Liberal Democrat Question have revealed that the Government has already spent £32m preparing for its ID card scheme even before it becomes law. Spending rose from £25,000 to £63,000 a day in the last six months of 2005, the Home Office said.

Alistair Carmichael, Liberal Democrat Spokesperson on ID Cards said "It is completely unacceptable to forge ahead on a scheme which will radically alter British society without the approval of MPs. The government persistently and wrongly claims that a majority of people want ID cards when it is quite clear that there is major disquiet in the country on this issue."
