The Barnett Formula will be applied to the Department of Health’s Spending Review settlement in the usual way. This will be reflected in the Welsh Government’s allocations when the outcome of the Spending Review is published on 25 November.
The Chancellor has received no recent representations from the Welsh Government on this subject. In November 2013, the Government accepted the Silk Commission’s recommendation that Vehicle Excise Duty should not be devolved to Wales.
