Scottish schools force children to have 'entitlement' card

According to Scottish Television:

Education bosses have been condemned for trying to force pupils in secondary schools to carry ID cards by refusing to serve them school dinners if they do not have one.

Scottish Borders Council has told parents that pupils who do not have the electronic microchipped National Entitlement Card (NEC) will not be served in the school canteen.

Campaigners claim that this is a “back door” strategy to impose the Home Office’s National Identity Register on people in Scotland.
