Letter from the NI CSA - paternity testing
This was in response to a request (below) under the Freedom of Information Act.
Dear Mr Pearson
Freedom of Information Act 2000
I am writing to confirm that the Department has now completed its search for the information you requested on 22nd August 2005.
A copy of the information is enclosed.
Some points of information that should be considered when these figures are being examined:
(Details of what to do if unsatisfied with this response have been removed for conciseness).

DNA test referrals & results 1997 - 2005
(my address removed)
19th August 2005
Please supply the following information, according to the Freedom Of Information Act.
It is acceptable to supply the numbers for 12-month periods other than calendar years, for example according to the NI CSA's annual reporting cycle. If so, please identify the cycle. And it is acceptable to supply the number, or the percentage, which disproved rather than proved paternity.
(For interest, this is similar to information in the Great Britain CSA's annual report of 1997-98, and similar to information supplied in a written answer in Parliament about that time. I have already received corresponding information for Great Britain from the GB CSA, covering 1998/9 up to the present).
