Today, I have tabled the Welsh Government’s final Budget 2019-20.

It takes account of the additional fiscal allocations made to our budget following the UK Government’s Autumn Budget, which was published on 29 October. The final Budget also makes additional allocations to support the priorities in our national strategy Prosperity for All

The final Budget documents are available in English and Welsh on the Welsh Government’s website. They include:

  • Annual Budget Motion
  • Budget Expenditure Lines (BEL tables)
  • Final Budget Explanatory Note
  • Bangor University’s Independent Scrutiny and Assurance of Devolved Tax Forecasts for Wales – Final Report December 2018

I am publishing the final Budget during recess in order to provide the earliest indication to Assembly Members and delivery partners about budgets for the next financial year.

The Minister for Finance will answer members’ questions about the final Budget during the Plenary debate on 15 January.
