Rishi Sunak – 2021 Comments on Budget Impact on Wales

The comments made by Rishi Sunak, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, on 29 October 2021.

This is a budget for the whole of the UK. We’re focused on what matters most to the British people – the health of their loved ones, access to world-class public services, jobs for the future and tackling climate change.

An additional £2.5 billion per year in Barnett funding means the Welsh Government is well-funded to deliver all their devolved responsibilities while the people in Wales will also benefit from this Government’s commitment to levelling up opportunity and delivering for all parts of the UK.

We are continuing to boost industry and jobs and improve infrastructure and public services throughout Wales.
