Notice will bear the same meaning as in the Master Definitions Schedule dated

(the "Master Definitions Schedule").
References in this Notice to a "Class of Notes" shall be deemed to be a
reference to the Class A1a Notes, the Class A1b Notes, the Class A2 Notes, the
Class M Notes or the Class B Notes, as the case may be, and accordingly this

holders of Notes and/or beneficial interests in the Notes, as the context may
We refer to a letter from Lloyds Bank plc (the "Liquidity Facility Provider")
to the Issuer dated 5 March 2014 (the "Increased Costs Letter").
The Liquidity Facility Provider has stated in the Increased Costs Letter that,
pursuant to clause 10.2(b)(2) of the Liquidity Facility Agreement, it is making
a claim for increased costs.
The Liquidity Facility Provider further stated that the additional capital cost
per annum calculated by the Liquidity Facility Provider is 0.4800% per annum.
The increase is effective from the date of the Increased Costs Letter and shall
be due and payable on the next Interest Payment Date and on each subsequent
Interest Payment Date (the "Increased Costs").
Pursuant to clause 10.2(b)(2) of the Liquidity Facility Agreement, the
Liquidity Facility Provider is therefore charging the Issuer such increased
costs, the forecast annualised costs to the Issuer of which is projected by the
Liquidity Facility Provider to be £96,000.
The Liquidity Facility Provider has certified that the Increased Costs is
representative of the costs incurred by it as Liquidity Facility Provider in
performing its obligations under the Liquidity Facility Agreement and complying
with the individual liquidity adequacy standards under BIPRU 12.
The Issuer will notify Noteholders through a further notice if there are any
material changes to the Increased Costs for subsequent Interest Payment Dates.
The Liquidity Facility Provider has communicated to the Issuer that it is open
to discussing proposals around the restructuring of the liquidity facility,
which could include a reduction of the amount of the liquidity facility
commitment, which, according to the Liquidity Facility Provider, would provide
the Issuer with a saving of £169,485 per annum (if the commitment was reduced
to 12% of the outstanding balance of the loans).
Any such proposals would need the support of Noteholders and so any Noteholders
that would like to discuss the possibility of any such proposals, please
contact the Issuer using the contact details below.
