StepChange Debt Charity comment on Bank of England data
Thursday, 29 March 2018

Too many people are carrying the burden of persistent credit card and overdraft debt. We estimate 1.4 million households used high cost credit last year for basic living expenses. This creates a debt spiral and further public policy intervention is needed if we are to solve it.”
