I am not sur eif this appropriate for this site but here goes...

I have been told that passport fees are going up in September. Does anybody know if this is true and if so any further details?

The increase will take effect from 3 September from, click here
As anyone knows the way to improve revenue flow when demand has fallen is to increase the price.
Works especially well when you have a monopoly.

anchor, if you renew via post office and have them check it all out(extra cost) about 10days or less

You save £1.35 if you wait till September and renew it by post.Remember the post office will charge you for each passport which can work out quite expensive if You have a largish family.
