HM Treasury and the Bank of England (the Bank) have agreed to extend temporarily the use of the government’s long-established Ways and Means (W&M) facility.

This measure is to provide a short-term source of additional liquidity to the government, if needed, during the pandemic.

The W&M facility is the government’s pre-existing overdraft at the Bank. Any drawings are expected to be repaid as soon as possible before the end of the year.
