To ask the Secretary of State for Wales, how many meetings he had with the Chancellor of the Exchequer specifically to discuss Welsh infrastructure projects between July 2016 and the Autumn Statement 2016.

I regularly discuss Wales's infrastructure needs with the Chancellor and other Ministerial colleagues. At Autumn Statement, the Chancellor announced that the Government is prioritising high-value investment, particularly in infrastructure and innovation, as a means of driving economic growth and raising productivity. We are increasing the Welsh Government’s capital budget by £436m which will enable it to fund infrastructure investment for the benefit of all of the people of Wales.

Wales will also benefit directly from UK Government investment in Research & Development and Digital Infrastructure. This will support the development of the Welsh economy and raise productivity.
