HC Deb 02 April 2001 vol 366 c88W
Mr. Bob Russell

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security if he will review the Child Support Agency regulations to require the alleged father in disputed maintenance cases to take a second blood test. [154876]

Angela Eagle

The Child Support Agency cannot require an alleged father to take a DNA test and there are no plans to change this. If either parent disputes the outcome of a CSA arranged test, they can apply to the courts for a declaration of parentage.
