The Welsh Government Finance Minister is unveiling more than £600m capital investment funding, which Jane Hutt said was "a clear demonstration or our determination to stand up for Wales."
She also called on the UK Government to devolve stamp duty to Wales, and announced £32m to complete the Noah's Ark Children's Hospital for Wales in Cardiff.

The Welsh Government has announced more than £600m of funding for infrastructure, which it says will create 11,000 jobs.

The Welsh Government will announce this morning which major projects it will fund in the coming year.

At first glance it seems every other Welsh Government department will see its budget cut in order to pay for the increase in spending on the NHS. It adds up to £100m cut for 2014/15. Local government takes the biggest hit, losing £98m from its allocation for 2014/15. The other departmental cuts are:
- Economy, Science Transport - £26.9m
- Education and Skills - £77.5m
- Natural Resources and Food - £22.2m
- Housing and Regeneration - £6.6m
- Culture and Sport - £4.3m
- Central administration - £4.1m
We will create a new & innovative £50m Intermediate Care Fund to drive integration of health, social services and housing #welshbudget14

Welsh Liberal Democrat leader Kirsty Williams says the budget deal reached between her party, Plaid Cymru and the Welsh Government shows a responsible approach to the political stalemate which could have led to chaos.
The Welsh Conservatives remain unimpressed by the budget deal between Labour, Plaid Cymru and the LIberal Democrats. This morning, Opposition leader Andrew RT Davies said it was 'up to them (the other two opposition parties) how they want to prop up this tired, clapped-out Labour government.'
And now that the deal's been announced, a source describes it to me as 'a bargain bucket deal with a Poundland government.'
