Today? April 2009?

Oop's I was reading if it would be possible to use the Freedom of Information Act to get details from the Ministry of Justice around the number of claims raised by a certain DCA and then the number of those claims that were withdrawn before being heard.I came across this article and was meant to post this, as for the other post I would think the numbers are even higher today

Total UK personal debt
UK banks and building societies wrote off £9.6bn of loans to individuals in the last 12 months to end Q1 2010. In Q1 2010 they wrote off £2.13bn (£1.25bn of that was credit card debt). This amounts to a write-off of £23.35m a day.

Total UK personal debt at the end of May 2010 stood at £1,460bn. The twelve-month growth increased to 0.9%. Individuals owe more than what the whole country produces in a year.
Total lending in May 2010 rose by £1.5bn; secured lending increased by £1.2bn in the month; consumer credit lending increased by £0.3bn (total lending in Jan 2008 grew by £8.4bn).
Total secured lending on dwellings at the end of May 2010 stood at £1,241bn. The twelve-month growth rate rose to 1.1%.
Total consumer credit lending to individuals at the end of May 2010 was £220bn. The annual growth rate of consumer credit rose by 0.1% to 0.0%.
Average household debt in the UK is ~ £8,716 (excluding mortgages). This figure increases to £18,159 if the average is based on the number of households who actually have some form of unsecured loan.
Average household debt in the UK is ~ £57,944 (including mortgages).
If you add to this the March 2010 budget report figure for public sector net debt (PSND) expected in 2015-16 (excluding financial interventions) then this figure rises to £110,166 per household.
Average owed by every UK adult is ~ £30,000 (including mortgages). This is 126% of average earnings.
Average outstanding mortgage for the 11.4m households who currently have mortgages now stands at ~ £108,972.
Britain's interest repayments on personal debt were £67.5bn in the last 12months. The average interest paid by each household on their total debt is approximately £2,679 each year. According to PwC the average household will need to spend approximately 15% of net income purely to service the interest payments arising from this debt.
Average consumer borrowing via credit cards, motor and retail finance deals, overdrafts and unsecured personal loans has risen to £4,513 per average UK adult at the end of May 2010.
Statistical Sources - Unless otherwise indicated statistics in the “Total UK personal debt” section are calculated by Credit Action - primarily using the Bank of England's debt figures.
