Placement of full stop

In his speech, DPM Heng listed the issues at the centre of the AHTC case. He said that WP had “appointed their friends to manage the Town Council, at a higher cost than the previous managing agent” causing AHTC to incur “deficits of up to S$2 million by the third year.”

Should the full stop after "year" be outside the closed inverted commas in British English?

Thanks.

@tanguatlay,
Yes. Also, traditionally, British style uses single quotes where American style would use double, and vice versa.
