National Identity Register

Volume 470: debated on Tuesday 15 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what plans his Department has to make use of data on the National Identity Register when it is established; and what the estimated annual cost to his Department of that use is. (174032)

It is too early in the process to estimate the costs of using the register within the Northern Ireland Office.
