star this property answer text <p>The Student Loans Company (SLC) administers student loans on behalf of the UK government and devolved administrations with funding from Her Majesty’s Treasury. While the SLC itself pays nothing on this funding, the cost to the government of this capital is the same as that paid on its general borrowing.</p><p> </p><p>The amounts paid out and the interest charged can be found in the published document titled ‘DfE consolidated annual report and accounts 2016-17’ on pages 152 to 158, attached.</p><p> </p><p>The government does not make a profit on these loans, which is reflected through the impairment charge in note 14.3.3 on page 155 of the attachment. This shows the proportion of the loan outlay and interest that the department expects not to recover. Student loans are subsidised by the government as a deliberate investment in the skills base of the country, which delivers benefits for individual students and for society at large.</p> more like this

This involved transferring the loan pool to a new independent English-domiciled company (“the Issuer”). This company is registered as ‘Income Contingent Student Loans 1 (2002-2006) Plc’. In turn the Issuer has issued to investors securities in the form of notes representing the rights to the remaining future repayments.</p><p> </p><p>The individual names of investors are commercially sensitive and are not publicly available.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p> </p><p>The 2011 census found that there were 579,121 Polish nationals resident in the UK at that time of polling. There is no data available on the exact contribution of Polish immigrants to UK GDP since 2010 - it is extremely complex to isolate the contribution of just one group of people to GDP, given the wide variety of economic activity that they will be involved in.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>However, many economists believe that Polish migrants have had a positive impact on the UK economy since 2004 as they tend to be of working age when they arrive and contribute more to the economy through taxes and consumption than they take out via public services.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>By broad industry definitions, Polish nationals work across all industries but are most often found in Manufacturing and Distribution, Hotels and Restaurants. By standard occupation definitions, Polish nationals are found in all occupational areas but are most often in skilled trades, process, plant and machine operative occupations and elementary occupations.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) found that the primary driver for determining an individual's fiscal contribution is whether they are in employment. The latest Labour Force survey data for January to March 2014 states that the unemployment rate amongst Polish nationals was 6.2%, lower than the UK average of 6.6%.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

They have established the Office for Students (OfS) and given it powers to run the new regulatory system. They will also enable OfS to run the current system in the transitional period, which started on 1 April 2018 and will end on 31 July 2019. The new system will be fully operational on 1 August 2019, which will allow for a smooth transition between regulators.</p><p> </p><p>Since the act gained royal assent, the government has carried out a wide range of consultations for the OfS. This resulted in the publication by OfS of ‘Securing student success: regulatory framework for higher education in England’. This regulatory framework, attached, is an important element of delivering the reforms promised by HERA. These consultations also met many of the non-legislative commitments made during the passage of HERA through Parliament.</p><p> </p><p>The attached table outlines non-legislative commitments made during the passage of HERA that have been met to date.</p>
