Identity cover up

While it is ok for government to want an Identity Card that will contain 51 categories of data on every adult in the UK, the Department of Works and Pensions thinks it is unacceptable for it to hand over three government reports into the costs and benefits of the identity card scheme. The Information Commissioner has ordered DWP to comply with a Freedom of Information request by Lib Dem Mark Oaten but they are appealing, a process that will take some months.
