Welsh Government budget clears latest hurdle

The Welsh Government's spending plans have been given the thumbs up by Assembly Members. Carwyn Jones managed to get his draft budget passed despite not having a majority of votes in the Senedd by reaching a deal with Plaid Cymru which will see at least £40m spent on apprenticeships.

Plaid AMs abstained in today's vote on the draft plans. Welsh Liberal Democrats voted against the budget this year despite supporting it last year when they did their own deal with Labour. The final vote comes on December 4th.
