Identity Cards

Volume 461: debated on Monday 18 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department in which locations facilities are (a) in existence and (b) planned for (i) the manufacture of identity cards and (ii) the processing of identity card applications. (142735)

The Identity and Passport Service will be responsible for the issue of identity cards to British citizens alongside the issue of British passports. However, no final decisions have yet been taken on the precise arrangements for the processing of applications or the manufacture of identity cards and this will depend on the outcome of future procurements.
