Today, I have tabled the Welsh Government’s Final Budget for 2021-22.  When I published the draft Budget proposals before Christmas, I signaled I would look to build on the initial package of COVID support in the final Budget.  In finalising our spending plans, I am allocating an additional £682.2m to provide certainty for our public services which stand at the forefront of our response to the pandemic.  In addition, I am announcing a £224.5m capital package which will provide an important stimulus for jobs and the economy over the coming months.

The Final Budget documents are available in Welsh and English on the Welsh Government’s website:

  • Annual Budget Motion;
  • Budget Expenditure Lines (BEL tables); and
  • Final Budget Explanatory Note.

The following documents, which are part of the suite of documents published today, are also available:

  • Welsh Tax Policy Report 2021;
  • Wales Infrastructure Investment Plan (WIIP) project pipeline update 2021;
  • Towards a Greenhouse Gas Assessment of the Welsh Government Budget: Illustrative Results for the 2021-22 Draft Budget (Cardiff University)

I will issue a further statement on 3 March setting out the implications of the UK Budget for Wales.
