Dear Department for Education,

Have any submissions gone to ministers covering the following policy issues:
(a) to raise the post-2012 repayment threshold to £25,000;
(b) to uprate the post-2012 repayment threshold/review it annually with average earnings from April 2019;
(c) any wider consequential policy issues such as the division of repayment between post-2012 student loans and student loans which are not post-2012 student loans, following the increase in the post-2012 threshold?

Please identify whether the Department for Education holds these specific submissions and release the submissions if so.

Yours faithfully,

Brian Harrison
