Government borrowing starts to shrink as relaxing of Covid restrictions give economy boost

Government borrowing fell in July compared with a year earlier as the removal of most Covid restrictions in England gave the economy a boost.

Borrowing – the difference between spending and tax income – was £10.4bn, official figures show, which was £10.1bn lower than July last year.

However, the figure was the second-highest for July since records began.

Borrowing has been hitting record levels, with billions being spent on measures such as furlough payments.

The huge amount of borrowing over the past year has now pushed government debt up to more than £2.2 trillion, or about 98.8% of GDP – a rate not seen since the early 1960s.

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) now estimates that the government borrowed a total of £298bn in the financial year to March.

That amounted to 14.2% of GDP, the highest level since the end of World War Two.

National rail use dropped to as low as 4% as the same week in 2019, and bus … Read more

Dose of caution with consumer confidence

Households lost some confidence in the economy this month as the end of the furlough scheme approached but levels of optimism are still close to record highs.

GfK’s consumer confidence index fell by one point to -8 in August as households cut back spending on big-ticket items following an initial boost when the economy emerged from lockdown in the spring.

The major purchase sub-index fell by five points to -3, while the savings index rose by five points to 25, suggesting that households are cautious about spending their lockdown savings amid uncertainty about how the economy will fare when government support measures are withdrawn in September.

Although households are more positive in their assessment of how the economy coped over the past year, they are slightly more cautious about the coming year. The sub-index for the general economic situation over the coming year slipped by one point to -6.
