Both publish details of the guarantees and loans they provide in their Annual Report and Accounts, which are published on their websites. Where UKEF provides financing for public borrowers or guarantors in developing countries, it is subject to OECD Sustainable Lending Principles.</p><p> </p><p>The UK strongly believes that transparency of loans is an important driver of debt sustainability. Given the complex international nature of sovereign debt, we continue to believe that internationally-agreed approaches are the most effective way to improve sovereign debt transparency and sustainability. We are working with our EU partners, and others, through the G20 to ensure the ongoing implementation of the G20’s agreed Operational Guidelines for Sustainable Financing for official creditors in 2017.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Apprenticeship Levy was introduced on a UK wide basis from 6 April 2017. Employers are charged at 0.5% of their pay bill over £3 million. In 2018-19, £2.7 billion was raised from the levy.</p><p> </p><p>Employers’ levy funds are distinct from the Department for Education’s ring-fenced apprenticeship budget, which is set to fund apprenticeships in England only. The budget has been set in advance for the current spending review period (to 2019-20). The budget was £2.2 billion for the 2018-19 financial year and it will rise to over £2.5 billion in 2019-20 – double what was spent on apprenticeships in 2010. Currently, we expect to remain within budget in the 2018/19 and 2019/20 financial years. The programme budgets for 2020/21 and beyond will be determined by the forthcoming Spending Review.</p><p> </p><p>The apprenticeship budget is used to fund new apprenticeship starts in levy and non-levy paying employers and to cover the ongoing costs of apprentices that are already in training. A detailed breakdown of spending for 2018-19 will be published in the Education and Skills Funding Agency Annual Report and Accounts.</p>
