Every month the Treasury and Office for National Statistics produce a joint statistical bulletin on the latest public finances data. On the same day the OBR will provide a brief analysis of the data, explaining how it should be interpreted in light of our most recent public finances forecast for the current year.
The Office for National Statistics (ONS) publishes a full list of public sector finances release dates and previous monthly data reports will be available on this page.
28 Oct: The ONS has identified an error in this data release that suggests year-to-date borrowing is up by between £5.7 billion and £6.2 billion on last year, rather than the £7.2 billion initially reported (17.1 to 18.6 per cent rather than 21.6 per cent). This reduces the extent to which borrowing appears to be running ahead of our March forecast.
