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

Letter from Stephen Geraghty, dated 29 November 2007:

In reply to your 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, how many of the Child Support Agency’s cases concerned a child who was between the ages of 16 and 18 years in the last period for which figures are available. [165774]

As at September 2007, the Agency has 269,000 assessed cases which involved at least one child between the ages of 16 and 18 years inclusive. This figure includes cases with a positive liability as well as those with a nil liability.

I hope you find this answer helpful.
