During Foreign Office Questions in the House of Commons on 22 July 2014, Steve McCabe MP asked:

Borrowing totalled £11.4 billion over the month, higher than the £10.7 billion forecast by economists, and £3.8 billion more than in June 2013.

 

Commenting on the figures, Steve McCabe, MP for Birmingham Selly Oak, said:

 

Students at Baverstock are taking part in the Send All My Friends to School Campaign run by the Global Campaign for Education. Steve was really impressed by the students campaign and told them how he had visited Mozambique and children there had to get up at 4’oclock in the morning to walk miles to school.
