£1,000 fine for wrong ID details

Women who change their name after marriage could face fines of up to £1,000 if they fail to tell the government, under new proposals.

Anyone with a biometric passport or ID card will be required to notify the National Identity Register of changes to the personal data it holds.

The £30 fixed fee for an ID card is likely to rise after 2010, draft laws published earlier also reveal.

And people undergoing a sex change will be entitled to two ID cards.

Identity cards for foreign nationals will be issued from next week, with the first cards being issued to British citizens at the end of next year in a pilot project for airside workers at Manchester and London City airports.

The government is holding a 12 week consultation on the draft legislation, which is likely to come before Parliament in the new year in time for its implementation.
