Make it easier to buy premium bonds

Introduce more proportionate rules for validating personal identities when buying premium bonds.

In particular scrap the requirement to have copies of passports "certified".

As a mimimum, extend the range of people who can do the certification so that it is consistent with the passport office's list.

Scrap need to replace driving licences every 10 years

Until a few years ago your driving licence didn't need replacing until you were 70 – unless you changed address.  Now you have to renew it every 10 years at a cost of £20.

We should go back to the old system.
