Identity Cards: Concessions

Volume 486: debated on Tuesday 13 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what reductions in the full price of an identity card she plans to offer (a) pensioners, (b) students and (c) those on income support. (244620)

The Identity Cards Act Secondary legislation consultation paper, published on 21 November 2008, made clear that it is intended that the initial fee for an identity card issued in 2009 and 2010 should be a standard fee of £30.

In due course the Government intend to seek views on the price of identity cards or passports as part of the longer term roll out of the National Identity Scheme.
