In delivering the Scheme, the Identity and Passport Service is working very closely with the Immigration and Nationality Directorate of the Home Office, with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and with UKvisas to support their identity management requirements. Indeed, much of what we shall be delivering in 2007 and 2008 will be in support of the Government's commitments to transform the immigration system. The Borders, Immigration and Identity Action Plan, which is being published simultaneously with this document, sets out how the Government will use the National Identity Scheme to strengthen our borders and to enforce compliance within the UK. We shall deliver the first ID cards for British citizens in 2009. We recognise that our ambitions for the National Identity Scheme are considerable. They reflect the scale of the benefits that are achievable.
