Deal means Plaid will abstain in budget vote

Plaid Cymru sources have confirmed that the party's Assembly Members will abstain when the Welsh Government's budget is voted on in the Senedd. Last year's deal saw the Liberal Democrats voting FOR the spending plans but Plaid has only agreed NOT to oppose them.

And although the spending agreed is for two years, Plaid is not committed to abstain next year. Explaining the position, a Plaid source said, ' We don't necessarily support everything in the budget.'
