I’ll do it, but only if you’ll help

I think the point I would make to your clients is that ID cards do not prevent attacks such as last week's nor does the absence of them inhibit police investigations. It has taken 5 days or less for the police to identify the suspected bombers. Despite the huge 'disadvantage' of there being no compulsory ID card at present.

That's a negative point. A positive point would be to say that £18 billion has been earmarked for the implementation of ID cards. That money would go a long way in funding targetted surveillance of terrorist groups. The sort of intelligence that might thwart future attacks.
