UK Liberty

Dear BBC

Posted in ID Cards by ukliberty on February 20, 2009

BBC:

The overall cost of the scheme over the next ten years is estimated at about £5.1bn.

That is not the overall cost of the scheme.  It is the cost of setting up and operating the issuance of passports, biometric visas (or “ID cards for foreign nationals”), and identity cards. 

There is no official, public estimate of the total cost of the scheme to the economy.
