§ Earl Russell
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they have any evidence to suggest that the Child Support Act 1991 has increased the amount of litigation between the parents subject to it, and, if not, whether they will make any attempt to collect evidence on this point.
§ The Lord Chancellor
This information is not available. The reason why litigation is undertaken are not entered on court records. It would be impossible to establish whether any particular proceedings had taken place as a result of the Child Support Act.
