The Debt Management Office carry out the day to day lending functions of the Public Works Loan Board (PWLB). They publish information monthly on their website on loans which have been issued, and annual updates on outstanding loans, including the dates when loans are due to mature.

631 loans totalling £1.7bn reached maturity in the 2018-19 financial year. All loans that were due for repayment in this period were repaid in full. The PWLB does not have any details of the source of the funds used by borrowers to repay the loans.
