Responding to comments made by the Welsh Government in relation to the UK Elections Bill, Welsh Conservative Shadow Minister for Constitution, Darren Millar MS said:
“This is nothing more than mischief making from the Welsh Government and its allies.
“Voters in Wales have nothing to fear from these proposals. The only people who should be concerned are those who intend to commit election fraud.
“People are required to present ID to vote in many vibrant democracies around the world including Canada, Norway, the Netherlands, France, Iceland and Italy so I see no reason why this shouldn't be the norm here in Wales.”
“If people have to present ID to collect a parcel from the Royal Mail then I cannot see a problem with them presenting ID to cast their vote in an election.”
