To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether his plans to offset the costs of the National Identity Register with fee revenue include (a) fees for biometric immigration documents, (b) fees for applications for an identity card, (c) accreditation fees paid by organisations wishing to verify identities via the National Identity Register and (d) fees paid by accredited organisations to verify individual identities.

It is intended that the cost of the National Identity Scheme, which includes the National Identity Register, will be primarily funded by fee revenue from the products and services that arise from the scheme, such as those from the applications to be entered in the register when obtaining a designated document, those from the issue of identity cards or those from the provision of identity checking services.
