Pamela Nash – 2014 Parliamentary Question to the Department for Work and Pensions

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Pamela Nash on 2014-04-29.

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, how much remains outstanding in child maintenance arrears by (a) UK parliamentary constituency area and (b) local authority area in each of the last three years.

Steve Webb

Information on the amount of child maintenance arrears owed by (a) UK parliamentary constituency will be placed in the Library.

The information on child maintenance arrears by (b) local authority area is already published and can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/284686/csa_qtr_summ_stats_regional_dec13.xls


The table contains outstanding arrears figures as at December 2012 and December 2013 broken down by each local authority. Although arrears figures are available in previously published versions of the regional tables (available at https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/child-support-agency-quarterly-summary-statistics–2) these figures are not comparable due to a different methodology.
