Cable wants to cull ID card database
In a speech at the Liberal Democrats' party conference today, Vince Cable has made the case for scrapping Government database schemes.
Vince Cable has called for the ID card scheme and other government database projects to be scrapped.
In a speech today at the Liberal Democrat's conference in Bournemouth, the shadow chancellor continued the political debate on cuts, saying money could be better saved by getting rid of the schemes.
Earlier this year, public sector analysts Kable said scrapping the controversial ID card scheme would save the government 3 billion alone. The NHS IT scheme has also come under a lot of criticisms due to its 12.7 billion price tag.
Cable concluded his speech by turning it round from cuts to investment. He disagreed with the continued investment into banks and instead suggested "a green future could be realised through real investment" which included green technologies and communications as areas worth looking into.
