To ask the Secretary of State for Wales, what recent discussions he has had with the Secretary of State for Levelling up, Housing and Communities on the levelling up funding for Wales relative to other parts of the UK.

I have regular discussions with colleagues across Government on how local growth funding will benefit communities the length and breadth of Wales. Wales received £120 million in the first round of the Levelling Up Fund (over 7% of the total UK allocation), £46 million through the one-year UK Community Renewal Fund (23% of the total UK allocation) and £460,000 in the first round of the Community Ownership Fund (9% of the total UK allocation). For each of these funds Wales has received more than its 5% UK population share.

All of this is in addition to the £585 million Wales will receive through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (a 22.5% share of the total UK allocation).
