Amendment proposed: 8, page 22, line 8, at end insert—
‘(1B) Welsh Ministers may set their own capital expenditure priorities.”—(Jonathan Edwards.)
This amendment would ensure that a future Welsh Government can utilise the borrowing capacity in order to invest in infrastructure projects that it deems a priority, and not be constricted or forced to invest in a project that the Treasury deems a priority.
Question put: That the amendment be made.
The House divided:
Ayes 8, Noes 278.
