UK Government Debts since 1997

New Labour set up the Debt Management Office in 1998. But I’m sure it would have been set up by the other party, too.

In parallel with the budget, it publishes Debt Management Reports, where I collected the data for this graph:

Conventional gilts, index-linked gilts, treasury bills, national savings and totals

The sharp rise in 2008 signals the “crisis”.
