A mammoth cut to Britain's plans to issue government debt was structured to minimise market disruption as far as possible and maintain a steady supply of bonds to investors, the head of the country's debt agency told Reuters on Wednesday. Gilt prices shot higher after the Debt Management Office (DMO) said it planned to issue 194.8 billion pounds ($267.5 billion) of bonds in the current 2021/22 financial year, 57.8 billion pounds less than its previous remit. Both 10-year and 30-year British government bonds recorded their biggest one-day price rises since March 2020, when prices surged after the Bank of England restarted its quantitative easing programme during Britain's plunge into a COVID-19 lockdown.
