Today, I have tabled the Welsh Government’s Final Budget for 2018-19 - ‘A New Budget for Wales’ – which sets out the allocations we will make to support the priorities in our national strategy, ‘Prosperity for All’.

The Final Budget takes account of additional fiscal allocations made following the UK Government’s Autumn Budget published on 22 November. Further capital allocations will be announced in the spring.

All Final Budget documentation is available in English and Welsh on the Welsh Government’s website.

Documents include:

Annual Budget Motion

Final Budget Explanatory Note

Bangor University: Independent Scrutiny and Assurance of Devolved Tax Forecasts for Wales - Update To October Final Report 

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. Should members wish me to make a further statement or to answer questions on this when the Assembly returns I would be happy to do so.
