Government cites 2006 law

In a bizzare twist the legislation bringing in ID cards seems to have thrown up a odd one. I spend a lot of my time trying to work out which bits of EU legislation rely upon references to the defunct Constitution. However this peach from the register trumps all my work.

"Section 25 of the Bill (Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Bill), Proof of Right of Abode, amends the Immigration Act 1971's list of the documents that can be used as proof of right of abode when entering the UK by adding "an ID card issued under the Identity Cards Act 2006 describing him as a British citizen."

Eh "The Identity Cards act of 2006", that be the one that was voted through with a 97% majority in the post reform single chamber will it?

Why we haven't heard more about this I just do not know.

Hat tip a chum.

Except that this came from a UK bill of law, not an EU one.

Shhh... I'm just learning to pretend I like herring and old bread from the supermarket, so please keep those gauffres away from me! Life for us fifth columnists is hard enough without such temptations...
