The ID card scheme has so far cost £250M.

15,000 cards have been issued.

The scheme is now to be scrapped.

It would have cost less to issue those people cars instead.

(Average price for a new car in 2008 was £14K . Cost per card was nearly £17K.)

FWIW: British passports are about to be upgraded to a new international security standard but additional proposals to put more biometric information on in the future have also been axed.
