Government Loans in October

The UK government has borrowed an additional £10.8 bn in October 2010. This is the largest amount borrowed in the month of October and an increase from £10.1 bn in October 2009.

Whilst these are large amounts the figures do generally represent the earlier estimates from economists.
This latest loan totals £83.8 bn in borrowing by the UK government for this financial year and this increase has come about despite an increase in the Treasury's tax take.

These figures do not include the controversial bank bailout payments and October's accounting further increases the budget deficit by £7.1 bn.

Overall, net debt for the UK government now represents £845.8 bn which equates to 57.1 % of the gross domestic product (GDP).

This borrowing has come about despite signs of a better performing economy with corporation taxation up 29% and increased VAT receipts.
