Click to follow
YOUR REPORT on Ros Hepplewhite, the new director of the Child Support Agency ('The quiet woman on the trail of runaway fathers', 14 February) refers to our organisation as 'representing absent parents'.

May I point out that the majority of non-custodial parents find the term 'absent parent' to be extremely offensive as they consider their children to be absent from them.
