About us

The Office for National Statistics

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) is the executive office of the UK Statistics Authority, a non-ministerial department which reports directly to Parliament. ONS is the UK government’s single largest statistical producer. It compiles information about the UK’s society and economy, and provides the evidence-base for policy and decision-making, the allocation of resources, and public accountability. The Director-General of ONS reports directly to the National Statistician who is the Authority's Chief Executive and the Head of the Government Statistical Service.

The Government Statistical Service

The Government Statistical Service (GSS) is a network of professional statisticians and their staff operating both within the Office for National Statistics and across more than 30 other government departments and agencies.

Other Loans and Advances

- All credit agreements with companies as well as all agreements

entered into before 1 April 1977 and up to the end of 1990 those for more than £15,000 (£5,000

before 20 May 1985) with individuals (including unincorporated businesses). From the first

quarter of 1991 all credit agreements with companies and any agreements with individuals

entered into before 1 April 1977.

Regulated Consumer Credit

- Consumer credit agreements regulated under the Consumer Act

1974 and its associated orders and regulations. They comprise non-exempt agreements from 1

April 1977 which involve the provision of credit not exceeding £15,000 (£5,000 before 20 May

1985). This limit was removed with effect from the first quarter of 1991.

Financial institutions -

These are insurance companies, non-deposit-taking finance houses,

building societies, investment trusts, unit trusts, pension funds, finance leasing companies,

factoring companies, property unit trusts and miscellaneous financial institutions, including

bank-like and unit trust-bank-like funds in the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man, gold dealers and special

finance agencies such as the Agricultural Mortgage Corporation.

Banking sector -

All references to the monetary sector describe the position from the beginning

of 1982.

Notes to tables

This monitor is compiled from returns submitted to National Statistics by finance houses in Great

Britain. The tables are based on the results of the ‘benchmark’ inquiry to all consumer credit

grantors in 1976. The figures include finance houses, check traders, moneylenders and other

specialist consumer credit granting companies with head offices in Great Britain. They exclude

institutions authorised under the Banking Act 1987 (which form the banking sector), retailers,

building societies and insurance companies.

From the beginning of 1991, amounts outstanding on loans and advances to consumers include all

consumer credit agreements, not just regulated agreements.
