Tories put government on notice over ID cards

David Davis has
written to Cabinet Secretary, Sir Gus O'Donnell, giving formal notice that an
incoming Conservative administration would scrap the Government's costly ID
card project.

And the Shadow Home Secretary has warned of the financial dangers of the
Government signing contracts to set up the ID card scheme when it faces
cancellation if the Conservatives are returned to power at the next election.

In his letter, Mr Davis asked what provision, if any, has been made in the
relevant contractual arrangements to protect the Government – and public funds
– against the costs that would be incurred as a result of early cancellation of
the scheme; with a similar letter fired off to likely major contractors,
warning them of the Party's intentions.
