Mr. Evans: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions what the average time taken by the Child Support Agency to reply to a letter from a member of the public is in the last year for which figures are available. 
You asked the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, what the average time taken by the Child Support Agency to reply to a letter from a member of the public is in the last year for which figures are available.
The Agency receives a great many letters from the public every day. These range from simple enquiries to complaints. For the majority of letters we do not record how long it takes to reply to them. I am sorry to say that I am not therefore able to answer the question in terms of all letters received from clients.
However, we do have targets to resolve or agree a resolution plan in 68% of client complaints within 15 working days of receipt. I can tell you that 74.3% of complaints were resolved or a resolution plan was agreed in 200405.
