TNA increases some fees

The UK National Archives announce "changes", mostly increases, effective 1 February 2016.

Service01-Feb-16PreviousIncrease %
Digital download from nationalarchives.gov.uk£3.45£3.305
Self-serve copying in the reading rooms£0.30£0.2520
Research per 15 min£27.30£259

Some of the other fees remain unchanged, but it appears TNA is not finding ways to be more efficient. Given Moore's Law how does TNA possibly justify the increase for digital downloads when fees are supposed to be revenue neutral?
