On 13th July, Rehman submitted the following written question to the Department for Work and Pensions:
"To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, whether the Child Maintenance Service is currently contacting people who are believed to owe child maintenance payments."
Mims Davies MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State (Minister for Employment), has provided the following response:
"Where payments have been missed we have asked parents to report the changes via the self-service portal. In order to ensure that receiving parents do not lose out in the long run, the Child Maintenance Service is updating cases with notified changes. Where payments have been missed the Service is contacting parents to re-establish compliance and collect any unpaid amounts that may have accrued."
