HC Deb 29 March 2001 vol 365 cc772-3W
Mr. Willetts

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what measurement the Government will use to assess how well the new child support regulations are working and when to move existing cases to the new system. [155417]

Angela Eagle

Existing child support cases will be transferred to the new scheme only after it has been introduced for new cases and is seen to be operating properly.

We will carefully monitor the new scheme, evaluating Child Support Agency progress towards meeting the targets set out in the public service agreement, such as the speed and accuracy of child support assessments.
