The liability due to SDR allocation reflects the allocation of SDRs that the UK government could be obliged to repurchase from the IMF (in the event of the winding up of the IMF SDR Department or in other circumstances). The treatment of the allocation differs from that of the ONS publication, the Pink Book. In the Pink Book, the SDR allocation is shown as a memorandum item.
Other liabilities comprise liabilities arising from repo agreements, forward and swap positions and unsettled trades.
