To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what the region and financial year breakdown is of the infrastructure investment contained within his Department's Investing in Britain's Future document, published in July 2013.
A regional breakdown can be found on page 12 of Investing in Britain's Future. In Wales most key infrastructure decisions are a matter for the Welsh Government. But I can confirm the Welsh Government will see a real terms rise in their capital budget in 2015-16, and Wales will also benefit from UK investment in a new prison in North Wales, further work on the M4 in south Wales alongside a response to the Silk Commission, and previously committed schemes like the electrification of the Great Western Mainline to Swansea.
A financial year breakdown of specific transport schemes is included on page 8 of the document. The Government has also committed £21 billion for schools over the financial years 2015-16 to 2020-21, £7 billion for science over the financial years 2015-16 to 2020-21, £3.3 billion for affordable housing over the financial years 2015-16 to 2017-19, £2.3 billion for flood defences over the financial years 2015-16 to 2020-21, and at least £2 billion per annum for the Single Local Growth Fund for the financial years 2015-16 to 2020-21.
