Rebecca Evans MS, Minister for Finance and Local Government
Today, I have tabled the Welsh Government’s Final Budget for 2023-24. This Budget maintains our commitment to prioritise the most vulnerable and protect public services, whilst continuing to create a stronger, fairer and greener Wales for all.
In addition to the allocations we have already set out in the Draft Budget, the Final Budget 2023-24 includes Financial Transaction capital allocations and a number of administrative changes.
The final Budget documents are available in Welsh and English on the Welsh Government’s website and include:
- Annual Budget Motion;
- Budget Expenditure Lines (BEL tables);
- Final Budget Explanatory Note; and
- Tables supporting Spending Plans.
The following document, which is part of the suite of documents published today, is also available:
- Office for Budget Responsibility independent assessment of our tax proposals – Welsh Taxes Outlook, February 2023 update.
The UK Government has announced its plans for a Spring Statement on 15th March. My intention is to make a statement as early as possible following this to provide an update on forecasts and the detail of any funding consequentials for Wales.
The Final Budget debate and vote will take place in the Senedd on 7 March.
