Question for Department for Work and Pensions

UIN 169480, tabled on 3 September 2018

The department does hold data on the number of non-resident parents who are in maintenance arrears through the Child Maintenance Service and the amount of money which is outstanding in such cases. However this information is not routinely collated at constituency level and could only be provided at a disproportionate cost.

You may be interested in the Child Maintenance Service Statistics: Regional Tables which are published quarterly. These tables contain the number of parents using the service and measures of compliance for the Collect and Pay service at local authority level.
