Britain's First World War debt is to be repaid in full, George Osborne has announced.
The Government will redeem the £1.9 billion of debt from the outstanding 3.5% War Loan - which was issued in 1932 to reduce the costs of servicing the national debt - in March 2015.
Chancellor George Osborne said it was a "moment for Britain to be proud of", adding: "We can, at last, pay off the debts Britain incurred to fight the First World War.

Tributes will be paid today to the millions of British servicemen and women who have died since the First World War began 100 years ago.Read the full story ›
