Child Maintenance

Volume 557: debated on Thursday 31 January 2013

The Government are reforming the child maintenance system. As part of these reforms, later today I am publishing a strategy for addressing arrears of child maintenance and maximising ongoing compliance: “Preparing for the future, tackling the past: Child Maintenance—Arrears and Compliance Strategy 2012-2017”.

I am grateful for the input received in earlier discussions on child maintenance arrears from various interested parties, including the Public Accounts Committee.

I will place a copy of the strategy document in the Libraries of both Houses.
