Overdue debt owed to government rose sharply during the pandemic, reaching £64.5bn in March 2021. It has since fallen to £49.5 billion in March 2022

Broadening governments work with the private sector is essential if we are to support, complement, and extend public sector debt management capabilities, ensuring vital public funds continue to be recovered in a way that’s fair and sustainable.
