The Identity and Passport Service (IPS) has collected approximately £115,000 in identity card fees to the end of February 2010.
The IPS Annual Report and Accounts for 2009-10 will include audited disclosure of operational identity card income and expenditure.
From 2012, the Identity and Passport Service will extend the rollout of identity cards across the United Kingdom, alongside the introduction of second generation biometric passports, but there are no formal plans to introduce a new model of identity card.
The fee for an identity card is £30 in 2009 and 2010, as set out in the March 2008 National Identity Scheme Delivery Plan. The level of fees that will apply in the future has not been finalised and will depend on the future fee strategy for passports and identity cards.
