The administration of the Child Support Agency is a matter for the Chief Executive, Mr. Doug Smith. He will write to the hon. Member.

Letter from Doug Smith to Steve Webb, dated March 2003:

The Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, in replying to you recent parliamentary question about the Child Support Agency promised a substantive reply from the Chief Executive.
You ask in how many cases parents with care not on income support have voluntarily discontinued using the services of Child Support Agency to collect child maintancance in each of the last 12 months.
We do not collect this information and I regret that I do not feel that it can be safely deduced from other information that we do collect.
