star this property question text To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, whether his Department has undertaken a review of the results of the controlled approach to implementation of the power contained in the Child Support Management of Payments and Arrears (Amendment) Regulations 2012 allowing part payment of child maintenance arrears in full and final satisfaction of a debt where both parents consent; and if he will assess the merits of his Department adopting a pro-active rather than reactive approach to use of that power in suitable cases. more like this

However the immediate priority is to ensure the smooth running of the 2012 child maintenance scheme so that children benefit from regular ongoing maintenance payments and we will continue to do all we can to collect historic Child Support Agency arrears.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p /> <p>The state pension reforms under the Pensions Act 2007, affecting those reaching state pension age from 6 April 2010, included the introduction of a single contribution condition of 30 qualifying years of National Insurance contributions or credits for a full basic state pension and the replacement of the Home Responsibilities Protection scheme with a new system of National Insurance credits for parents and carers and earlier years of Home Responsibilities Protection were converted into qualifying years.</p><p> </p><p>These measures were primarily designed to improve the basic pension entitlements of women. The effects of the relaxation of the contribution conditions and the changes to Home Responsibilities Protection are complex. It has not been practicable to disaggregate the combined effects.</p><p> </p><p>However, information on the numbers of women resident in Great Britain receiving the full basic State Pension for the years 2009/10 to 2013/14 can be found in Table 1 of the Ad Hoc statistical release published to support the review of the Pensions Act 2007 which is available at <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/398701/statistical-analysis-review-pensions-act-2007.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/398701/statistical-analysis-review-pensions-act-2007.pdf</a></p><p> </p><p>Equivalent information in relation to men is not readily available. <br> <br></p>

star this property answer text <p /> <p>The new statutory child maintenance scheme introduced in 2012 primarily uses a link to HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) to get information on taxable earnings of non-resident parents. This enables more accurate maintenance calculations and removes the ability of many paying parents to manipulate the income information they provide. Under the 2003 Scheme we have also expanded income assessable for maintenance to include ‘foreign earnings’ declarable to HMRC for UK tax purposes.</p><p><em> </em></p><p>To secure collection, we continue to apply targeted enforcement measures proportionate to the difficulties and severity of any instance(s) of non-compliance. To reinforce this, since 2010, we have introduced the ability to deduct maintenance directly from someone’s bank account.</p> more like this
