Bus passes for over-60s could be axed and replaced with ID cards.
Home Office Minister Meg Hillier suggested millions of elderly people could be asked to carry the controversial cards to prove their age when they travel.
But civil liberty campaigners have accused the Government of targeting vulnerable people to widen the unpopular scheme.
Around 11million people over 60 enjoy the use of bus passes for free travel around the country.
The ID cards are not wanted and Meg shows she is desperate an scraping the bottom of the ideas barrel.
