Latest Public Sector Finances data is available up to November 2014. In May 2010 public sector net debt excluding public sector banks was £974.2 billion (62.7% of GDP). In November 2014 public sector net debt was £1457.2 billion (79.5% of GDP).

The latest OBR forecast shows that public sector net debt will peak at 81.1 percent of GDP in 2015-16, before starting to fall as a share of GDP in 2016-17. The government’s long-term economic plan is working, restoring the public finances to a sustainable path and delivering economic security for hardworking people.
