Steve Barclay – 2021 Comments on Funding for Covid-19 in Wales

The comments made by Steve Barclay, the Chief Secretary to the Treasury, on 16 February 2021.

We’re committed to giving the Welsh Government the resources and flexibility it needs to tackle coronavirus and today we’re delivering an extra £650m boost.

We have worked closely with the Welsh Government in advance of this announcement to ensure they have the certainty they need ahead of finalising their budget on 16 February.

UK Treasury schemes such as furlough, support for the self-employed and business loans also continue to protect jobs and livelihoods across Wales.
