State to Unveil Bond Issue

The government will announce an £11 billion ($18.1 billion) bond issue in London this week in a bid to encourage Western investment, the Daily Telegraph reported, without saying where it got the information.

British Business Secretary Peter Mandelson will meet Alex Kudrin, the Russian finance minister and deputy prime minister, Nov. 5 when the bond issue is to be announced, the newspaper said.
