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

Letter from Doug Smith to Mr. Steve Webb, dated 24 February 2005

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, how many and what percentage of full-time equivalent Child Support Agency staff are employed as frontline staff.

I am not able to respond precisely to the question as asked. However, I can say that at 31 March 2005 the Agency is planning to employ around 10,300 staff. We have recently baselined the size of our head office function as 286 staff.

Does this answer the above question?
