HC Deb 15 April 1958 vol 586 c43

The out-turn can, therefore, be summed up as follows. Above the line there was a surplus of £423 million. Below the line net payments were £635 million. So the difference which had to be financed by borrowing was £212 million. This was the main factor leading to the net increase over the year of £224 million in the total of the National Debt.
