UK Liberty

Why does Blunkett still think the NIR will be a clean database?

Very odd:

David Blunkett (Sheffield, Brightside, Labour)  | Hansard source | Watch this

May I follow the hon. Gentleman’s logic on the abolition of the ID card scheme to spend money on the police? Can he explain briefly how reducing the amount raised from the passport charge—to take account of the fact that there would no longer be a clean database and the additional charge associated with the passport would thus no longer be needed—would allow the service to raise the same money for spending on the police from a different source?

The Government scrapped the idea of a ‘clean database’ some time ago!
