Here’s a brief roundup to help catch up on recent developments in various areas:
- The Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill is now The Legislative and Regulatory Reform Act 2006. I’ll comment on this later at Magna Carta Plus, for now here is the response and discussion from some other campaigners against this bill.
- An e-petitions web page has been set up at the Prime Minister’s web site, and one of the petitions subsequently created is an anti-ID cards petition, which has had thousands of signatures so far. These petitions will apparently be sent to the PM, once completed, and a response given to them.
- The Liberal Democrats are asking for nominations for legislation to be repealed in a “Freedom Bill”, and have identified 10 pieces of legislation they think should be repealed, including the Identity Cards Act and the legislation that introduced control orders.
Anyway that’s all for now.
