To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, how much is owned to resident parents by non-resident parents in child support arrears in each local authority in Scotland in the latest period for which figures are available.
As at July 2017 the total amount of Child Support Agency Arrears for each Local Authority in Scotland was as follows:
Arrears owed (£ Million)
Argyll & Bute
Dumfries & Galloway
Perth & Kinross
Information on the total value of arrears on cases in each Local Authority in Scotland for the Child Maintenance Service could only be provided at disproportionate cost.
1) Numbers are rounded to the nearest 100,000.
2) Cases have been allocated to a local authority in Scotland by matching the residential postcode of the parent with care for all cases administered on the CS2 and CSCS computer systems, as well as cases managed off system, to the Office for National Statistics Postcode Directory.
