    The Lords and Commons battling on 2 fronts

    The BBC reports on the ongoing duelling between the Lords and Commons:

    MPs are locked in a twin stand-off with the House of Lords over identity cards and anti-terrorism laws.

    Peers have three times defeated the government over proposals to force all passport applicants to get ID cards.

    But MPs have again reversed the defeats as Home Secretary Charles Clarke told opponents to stop "frustrating the will of the people".

    The Commons also overturned a Lords defeat over plans to outlaw the glorification of terrorism.

    Peers have twice removed any mention of "glorification" from the Terrorism Bill.
