Topical Questions

Earlier today the Minister told me that the Child Support Agency was going to get even more powers for enforcement. When will the Government stop giving the CSA more powers for enforcement and actually ensure that it uses the enforcement powers it already has?

[Official Report, 19 October 2009, Vol. 497, c. 636.]

Letter of correction from Helen Goodman:

An error has been identified in an oral answer given to the hon. Member for Wolverhampton, South-West (Rob Marris) on 19 October 2009. The original answer was as follows:

I can inform my hon. Friend that CMEC is using its powers extremely effectively. The maintenance collected has now reached £1.136 billion, which is £157 million above the target.

The correct answer should have been:

I can inform my hon. Friend that CMEC is using its powers extremely effectively. The maintenance collected has now reached £1.136 billion, which is £1 million above the target.
