Grantham & Stamford MP wants digital identity scheme

Grantham & Stamford's MP is calling for his Government to introduce a digital identity scheme.

Nic Boles says he's uncomfortable with the idea of mandatory ID cards but argues over the next 5 years, online permits should be phased in.

You'd be able to get access to the data which'd include health records, tax records and your movements in and out of the country.

In light of the Windrush scandal he says it's clear there are flaws to the current policies.
