What is the Welsh Government responsible for?
These areas include:
- local government
- economic development
- social services
- Welsh language
- agriculture and rural affairs.
The role of the Welsh Government is to:
- make decisions on matters regarding these areas, for Wales as a whole;
- develop policies and implement them;
- propose Welsh laws (Assembly Bills).
The Welsh Government has a budget of more than £15 billion, of which more than £5 billion goes to the NHS in Wales and more than £4 billion directly to local authorities which deliver many other services.
The UK Government is still responsible for certain public services in Wales, for example, police, prisons and the justice system. Matters such as tax and benefits, defence, national security and foreign affairs are also dealt with by the UK Government.
The Welsh Government’s areas of work are organised by topic on our website.
