Citizens of the UK who weren’t happy about the coming biometric ID card will have even less to like now. The cards have been doubled in price. Plans for the cards call for the collection of facial scans, fingerprints, and eventually retinal scans for a fee estimated to be around £29.

The £29 fee is in addition to the £30 fee for issuing the biometric card already. A trial of the cards will be conducted with 200,000 airside airport workers next October. The trial will be limited to employees at Manchester and City of London airports and the cards will be issued free.
In addition to free cards, the Home Office will provide the airports with £500000 to cover airport costs. An 18-month trial was scaled back due to the threat of industrial difficulties.
