Child Support Agency: Expenditure

Volume 460: debated on Wednesday 23 May 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions what the total running costs were of each of the offices of the Child Support Agency in each of the last five years. (133901)

The administration of the Child Support Agency is a matter for the Chief Executive. He will write to the hon. Member with the information requested.

Letter from Stephen Geraghty, dated 23 May 2007:

In reply to your recent Parliamentary Question about the Child Support Agency, the Secretary of State promised a substantive reply from the Chief Executive.

You asked the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, what the total running costs was of each of the offices of the Child Support Agency in each of the last five years. [133901]

The Agency has people employed in over 200 discreet buildings. Unfortunately, the Departments Accounting System does not allow us to provide an analysis of the total spending by each of these buildings. The information is therefore not available in the format requested. The total administrative expenditure of the Agency is disclosed each year in the Annual Report and Accounts.

I hope you find this answer helpful.
