Overseas Holdings breakdown by Country

Currently waiting for a response from UK Debt Management Office, they should respond promptly and normally no later than (details).

Dear UK Debt Management Office,

I understand from previous FOI requests in 2014 that country-by-country breakdowns were not available for the Overseas Holdings of UK Debt.

Is this still the case? If it is, why?

I strongly think this is something that should be made available to the public so that we can understand which countries are increasingly holding our National Debt, now 28% of the total £1.9 trillion. This information is surely attainable if not currently readily available.

It is provided in the US so why not here? Reference the link below:

Dear Mr Perks,

Thank you for your FOIA request of 8 February 2018.

Could you please clarify the information you wish to receive. The UK DMO can provide a country by country break down of Gilt holders (with the caveat that the underlying beneficiary may not always reside in the country of registration) should you wish to receive that.

Yours sincerely,

Dear RecordsManagementService,

Yes that breakdown sounds exactly like what I was hoping for. Specifically, it would be a country by country breakdown of Gilt holders that fall under the 'overseas holdings' category.

Thank you in advance.

Yours sincerely,

John Perks
