De La Rue, the banknote printer, enjoyed a 9 per cent rise in underlying, pre-tax profit growth to £31.5m in the first half, mainly thanks to its "solutions" business which makes British passports.

De La Rue printed its ten millionth UK passport during the six months to October, a contract that helped to offset delays to big currency orders.
