Liberty complain of government sophistry on mandatory ID cards

According to the Sunday Times, Liberty are unhappy with the latest government immigration control plans.

"Ministers have been accused of trying to introduce compulsory identity cards through the back door, despite promises that people will not have to carry them.

Lawyers at Liberty, the civil liberties group, say that little noticed clauses in the draft immigration and citizenship bill introduce new powers to make people produce identity documents or face arrest."
