The Devolved Administrations are working closely with the UK Government to chart jointly the way through this crisis and beyond. We greatly appreciate this collaborative approach.

Through the Barnett formula the Welsh Government receives a share of funding from UK government borrowing, including during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. The UK Government therefore has no plans to review the Welsh Government’s ability to borrow.
