"++ IDENTITY CARDS BILL THIRD (LAST IN HOUSE OF COMMONS) READING IMMINENT ++
The Third Reading of the government's ID Card Bill will take place next week,
on Tuesday 18th October. There will be a limited debate and further
opportunity for MPs to vote on the Bill before it goes to the Lords. At the
last vote on the bill (Second Reading), the government won by just 31 votes.

briefings to MPs and constituencies but we need your help too."
