IT Projects

Volume 455: debated on Monday 8 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what the expected (a) start and (b) completion date is for the (i) NOMIS, (ii) identity cards, (iii) CID, (iv) biometric residence permits, (v) CJS Exchange, (vi) IBIP, (vii) e-borders procurement, (viii) CIDTR, (ix) EDRM, (x) Adelphi, (xi) IND points-based system, (xii) Mycroft, (xiii) NSPIS Case and Custody, (xiv) WITR, (xv) WISP, (xvi) Warnings Index Portfolio, (xvii) identity management and (xviii) ePassports projects; and what the original planned completion date was in each case. (105489)

Please see the following table for a full answer to this question.

Identity cards have not been included in this table because the estimate of likely costs over the next 10 years of introducing ID cards was set out in the costs report laid before Parliament on 9 October 2006, which included the costs of issuing passports and identity cards. The intention is to start issuing identity cards to British citizens from 2009.
