Answered By: 
The Mayor

We do not hold IDVA numbers before March 2013. MOPAC commissioned its first survey specifically to understand the numbers of IDVAs across London in April 2013 (see table below). This indicated that there were 114.4 IDVAs in London that residents in the capital had access to. Please note that Brent, Enfield and Greenwich local authorities did not respond to the survey. The borough breakdown is set out below.
