John Robertson (Glasgow, Anniesland) (Lab): Much of what I wanted to say has already been said, but I have been taking notes, and I may be able to shed some light on the comments of others.
My hon. Friend the Member for Walthamstow (Mr. Gerrard) made great play of what would happen in the event of corrupt information or input errors. In effect, he said “Don’t do it: there should not be any kind of ID card.” If we followed his argument to its logical conclusion, however, we would not do anything about anything.
