Only borrowers earning over £45,000 and those in study pay the maximum interest rate of 6.3% and many will be charged less than this. The system of variable interest rates help ensure that the highest earners make a higher total contribution than those on lower incomes.</p><p> </p><p>Reducing interest rates would benefit high earners only. That is why the government has increased the repayment threshold from tax year 2018-19 and will increase the repayment threshold again in April 2019, reducing monthly repayments for all borrowers earning above £25,000.</p><p> </p><p>We believe that it is right that students should contribute to the cost of their higher education and that this contribution should be linked to their income. This means that those who have benefited the most from their education repay their fair share.</p>

I have asked the Authority to reply.</p><p> </p><p>Dear Lord Roberts,</p><p> </p><p>As National Statistician and Chief Executive of the UK Statistics Authority, I am replying to your Parliamentary Question asking how many rough sleepers died on the streets in (1) 1989, (2) 2000, (3) 2010, and (4) 2015 <strong>(HL15299)</strong>.</p><p> </p><p>Last year, Office for National Statistics (ONS) published the first ‘Experimental Statistics of the number of deaths of homelessness people in England and Wales’[1]. The statistics include those who were sleeping rough or using emergency accommodation such as shelters for homeless people, at or around the time of death. It is not presently possible to separate ‘rough sleepers’ as a distinct category from other homeless people included in the data. These statistics only cover the period 2013 to 2017, so figures for 1989, 2000 and 2010 are not available.</p><p> </p><p>Table 1 below provides the estimated number of deaths of homeless people in England and Wales for each year between 2013 and 2017. The figures are estimates which are based on deaths registered in the relevant years of individuals identified as homeless based on information provided on the death certificate, at the time of registration or in a coroner’s report to ONS, such as the words ‘no fixed abode’ or mention of a place known to be a shelter for homeless people, plus a statistical calculation of under-reporting.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Yours sincerely,</p><p><strong>John Pullinger </strong></p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong><br> </strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>Table 1: Estimated number of deaths of homeless people in England and Wales, registered between 2013 and 2017<strong>[2]</strong><sup>,<strong>[3]</strong></sup></strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Year</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Deaths</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2017</p></td><td><p>597</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2016</p></td><td><p>565</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2015</p></td><td><p>508</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2014</p></td><td><p>475</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2013</p></td><td><p>482</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>[1]<a href="https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/birthsdeathsandmarriages/deaths/bulletins/deathsofhomelesspeopleinenglandandwales/2013to2017" target="_blank">https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/birthsdeathsandmarriages/deaths/bulletins/deathsofhomelesspeopleinenglandandwales/2013to2017</a></p><p>[2]Figures are for deaths registered, rather than deaths occurring in each calendar year.</p><p>[3]Figures for England and Wales may include deaths of non-residents.</p><p> </p>
