Many of you will be aware that the Government has recently released a draft Bill on the possibility of introducing a compulsory national ID card. This decision has had a mixed reaction from the public. I see that, according to opinion polls the scheme is supported by the majority of the public. However, the majority of letters i have received on the subject show a strong bias against the scheme.
Therefore I would like to consult my constituents on this subject. I would appreciate it if constituents of Bethnal Green and Bow (to check if you are a constituent of Oona's see the about Oona section) return the attached form to me. Please either print off the survey and post to;
Oona King MP
