Licence Issue Costs

Okay another winge if you don't want to read further.
Having just renewed my passport and enquired about the issue of a JAA ppl I naturally compared the costs.

For 72 the Passport people would carry out an ID check if it had been a new issue, rather than the renewal as on this occasion. As it was I got back a shiny new cardback document with security printed paper and embedded chip with biometric information. I don't necessarily think 72 is good value but......

I was interested in obtaining a JAA PPL to allow me to hire in JAA land rather than my CAA PPL. I was quoted 168 by the CAA for the issue. They already know me through my CAA PPL, I don't have to submit any test results or proof of identity etc. The licence is printed on plain paper.

Okay I suppose I should be grateful as my first issue PPL costs 210.
But it does not sound reasonable to me. Anyone from the CAA able to comment upon what seems to me to be another form of taxation ?
