Scrapping ID cards

"In my view a national identity card system is not necessary in our country. No further money should be spent on it. The idea should be abandoned." —Former law lord Lord Steyn

"We are close to a general election and … a change of government will mean an end to ID cards. It will, quite literally, be the first thing we do. Drafting an ID card repeal bill will be right at the top of our to-do list." —Shadow home secretary Chris Grayling MP
