Dear HM Passport Office,

Her Majesty’s Government has announced their intention to switch to issuing passports with a blue cover after the United Kingdom leaves the European Union on 29 March 2019.

My Freedom of Information Act Request is this:

For each of the following items, does the Passport Office have plans, and if so, can you release those plans, redacted if necessary?
a) For dealing with unusually high demand for early renewals shortly before 29 March 2019, that demand being expected from strong supporters of the European Union wanting an EU passport to be valid for as long as possible
b) For dealing with unusually high demand for early renewals shortly after 29 March 2019, that demand being expected from strong opponents of the European Union wanting a blue passport as soon as possible

Yours faithfully,

Richard Gadsden
