Detailed business cases were then developed for the biomass sites offering the quickest payback and with the potential to meet the Department’s investment criteria. Unfortunately, although these sites offered a practical means of generating renewable energy they did not meet the Department’s investment criteria and so have not been pursued.

In January 2012 new methodology was introduced to provide a more accurate view of the number of cases contributing towards arrears. Previously, arrears collected figures included arrears of maintenance that have been linked to an arrears collection schedule. In the new methodology, payments above the current liability are counted as receipts towards arrears.</p><p>2. The latest <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/child-support-agency-quarterly-summary-statistics-september-2014" target="_blank">Child Support Agency Quarterly Summary of Statistics</a> contains data up to September 2014. Table 10: Cases Contributing Towards Arrears, shows the number of cases with an arrears liability and also the number of cases paying towards arrears.</p><p>3. Figures rounded to the nearest 100 and may not sum due to rounding.</p><p>4. Northern Ireland cases include cases managed by the CSA in Great Britain where the Parent with Care lives in Northern Ireland. This does not include cases managed by the Northern Ireland Child Maintenance Enforcement Division (CMED).</p><p>5. Cases included in the ‘Other’ category are cases where either the Parent with Care has moved abroad, or where the area of the Parent with Care is Unknown.</p>
