"Decision of the Secretary of State wrongly to assess the claimant to child support maintenance; and (failing that) the decision of the Secretary of State wrongly to calculate the arrears due to the claimant; and the decision of the Secretary of State (in either case) wrongly to apply for a liability order/Child Support Act 1991 s33."
"As stated, there is no appeal against a refusal to make a revision. Instead, the appeal right relates to the original decision to which the application for revision applies. The contents of your notice of appeal did not specifically relate to the appropriate decision, which was made in February 1999, to which the contents Mr Pigott's February 1999 letter deals with. Instead, the notice of appeal relates to the 1994 decision and questions whether there was a right to make an assessment at all. As you are aware, Mr Piggot's appeal on the grounds, if it was made, was found to be out of time."
