UK Gov’t Borrowing Falls

UK Government borrowing fell in the first six months of the financial year, official figures have shown, BBC reported. Public sector net borrowing excluding public sector banks was £46.3 billion between April and September, down £7.5 billion, or 13.9%, from a year earlier, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) reported. In September, borrowing was £9.4 billion, down £1.6 billion from a year earlier. In July, the Office for Budget Responsibility forecast the figure for the whole year would be £69.5 billion. That would be down 22.9% from the estimate of £89.2 billion from 2014-15. There was good news for the chancellor, as August’s borrowing figure was revised down by £500m and July’s was lowered by £2.5 billion, although the figures for April and May both increased by £800m.
