They made a mistake in the press statement. It should have read
"GOV.Verify is an exciting new way to get you to voluntarily input all your personal details into a central database, which replacements the ID card scheme that got rejected out of hand. We're keen to ensure that every member of the British public is registered so that when we lose the data through Ministerial cock-ups, everyone will be equally disadvantaged
We hope that you embrace the exciting future where soon, your entire digital lives will be collated in a central location at our secure facility in Cheltenham"
