Treasury Minister to outline funding plans for Wales

Danny Alexander MP, Chief Secretary to the Treasury is expected to announce that he wants Welsh economist, Gerry Holtham to update his work on how Wales is funded.

Speaking at the Welsh Liberal Democrat Conference in Cardiff, he is also expected to say that he has asked civil servants in the Treasury to start straight away on how a funding floor will operate.

“Our challenge is take the next steps on the funding reform that Liberal Democrats have secured.

The previous Labour government refused to commit to fair funding – it’s taken Liberal Democrats to achieve that.

That is why I have asked civil servants in the Treasury to start straight away on how a funding floor will operate. And as part of that process I want Gerry Holtham to update his work to help inform progress."
