To ask the Secretary of State for Wales, what discussions he has had with Ministers in the Welsh Government on the implications for the UK Government's policies of the recently issued gross value added statistics for Wales; and if he will make a statement.

I hold regular discussions with the Welsh Government on the Welsh economy. I welcome the recently published statistics showing that Wales recorded the highest annual growth of Gross Value Added per head of all the UK nations and regions in 2013. Furthermore, since 2010, Wales has been the fastest growing economy of the UK nations and regions after London. Coupled with sustained falls in unemployment, this shows that our long term economic plan is working for Wales.
