Revenue to help with child support
The Inland Revenue can disclose information to help the Child Support Agency trace non-resident parents and pass on information about earnings and self-employment, it has been revealed.
Speaking in Commons, paymaster general Dawn Primarolo said the process, which will cost £165,000 a year to administer, would be paid for by the CSA.
Earlier this month, the CSA, an agency of the Department of Work and Pensions revealed that it was going to completely reform the current child support scheme to ensure a more effect delivery of maintenance to children.
This was first set out in a government white paper in July 1999.
