May 2018 UK public sector finances 21 June 2018

  • Prior 6.230bn
  • Ex-banks 4.966bn v s6.250bn exp. Prior 7.840bn
  • PSNCR 4.507bn vs -9.710bn prior
  • Central government NCR 6.9bn vs -6.1bn Prior

Better borrowing numbers this month but no help to the pound. Good news for Chancellor Hammond but he’s now got to find some £20bn from somewhere to fund May’s increase in the NHS. Some of that has been touted to come from less payments to the EU after Brexit but otherwise, I hope those money trees are blooming or borrowing will be going up 😉
