These were redeemed in 2015, on 1 February, 9 March and 1 April respectively.</p><p> </p><p>Almost 99% of the amount due has been repaid to date. Due to the age of the records relating to undated gilts, the registrar has not been able to contact all holders. However, the government has thus repaid the vast majority of the nation’s First World War debt.</p> more like this
