Dear [email address] on behalf of Operations FOI Team,
Thank you very much for providing these figures. I am presuming a breakdown of cost is not available, however, if possible, could you confirm if this includes the FIU department and court/tribunal proceeding costs please?
Also, are you able to provide the figures for running Child Maintenance Options? Which is detailed as an additional but entirely separate division of DWP to the Child Maintenance Service.
Thank you for your email.
