§ Lord Pearson of Rannoch
asked Her Majesty's Government:
To what extent their proposals for identity cards are required by the United Kingdom's membership of the European Union.[HL581]
§ Baroness Scotland of Asthal
The European Community does not have competence to introduce measures on national identity cards. There are therefore no requirements arising from the United Kingdom's membership of the European Union in respect of its proposals for identity cards.
