    A Google search tells me that here in the UK, the rise from January 2007 to January 2008 was 8.3 billion pounds sterling. (We seem to have gone over to the American usage of "billion" - I am fairly certain our national debt cannot have increased by 8.3 million million pounds in a year!) The sites I looked at for this info were:
