To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what estimate she has made of the sums to be allocated to the introduction of identity cards in each of the next six financial years. (271774)

The latest projected estimates for the cost of issuing identity cards are published in the sixth National Identity Service cost report presented to Parliament on 6 May 2009. A copy of the report may also be found at:

I would refer the hon. Member to that report.
