Child ID numbers to help fight abuse
17 October 2003

'Identity numbers for children would be part of a tracking system to keep tabs on England's 11 million children. Each child would have a file including the name, address, date of birth, school and GP. If the child came to the attention of agencies such as education welfare, social services or police, the file would carry a flag giving contact details for the lead professional in charge of the case.' link
