ID bill pongs again

David Davis MPMPs have again rejected Lords amendments that would stop the government issuing ID cards to all those applying for passports:

Mr Clarke is reported to be happy to see the legislation ping-pong between the two houses until July if necessary rather then back down...

Ministers were trying to force the majority to have ID cards through "covert compulsion" because they fear they will never win the vote to make it compulsory otherwise, Mr Davis claimed.
