star this property answer text <p> </p><p> </p><p>The guidance document published by HM Courts &amp; Tribunals Service (HMCTS) explains that remission applications will be processed within five working days of the date that they are received, and that appeals will be determined within 10 days. The latest available information collated by HMCTS staff indicates that the applications received in respect of employment tribunal matters are currently determined within three working days. Appeals in respect of employment tribunal remissions decisions are currently determined within nine days.</p><p> </p><p>However, data on the time taken for each one of the remission applications determined so far is not readily available. To obtain that data would require significant work to interrogate the relevant HMCTS case management database. This work, if undertaken for the purposes of answering this question, would incur disproportionate cost.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>UK Export Finance (UKEF) supports UK exports, principally through the provision of guarantees to banks extending loans to overseas buyers and insurance to UK exporters against the risk of non-payment. From 1 May 2010 to 31 March 2014, the percentage of guarantees and insurance policies issued by UKEF that have subsequently defaulted resulting in a claim being paid, or where a claim is currently under examination, is 0.2%.</p><p> </p><p>Given the tenor of transactions that UKEF typically supports, which can be up to 15 years, an in-year default rate does not give a clear indicator of the performance of UKEF's portfolio. In accordance with the financial objectives and risk measures agreed with HM Treasury, UKEF measures the Expected Loss of its portfolio. Expected Loss is the statistical estimate of the amount of UKEF's contingent liability which could be expected to turn into claims that are irrecoverable. Full details of UKEF's performance and risk management can be found in its Annual Report and Account which is available in the libraries of the House.</p>
