Letter from Mr. Doug Smith to Mr. David Willetts, dated
I am replying to your Parliamentary Question to the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions about the Child Support Agency.
You asked what plans the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions has to increase the staff of the Child Support Agency whilst the new assessment procedures are implemented.
The amount of staff in the Child Support Agency will grow by around 1,000 during the period in which the new procedures will be implemented.
I hope this is helpful.
