The Shadow Chancellor says it would be up to the Welsh Government to decide how to spend its share of up to £4bn that he's called for to be spent on building new homes. Ed Balls said 100,000 affordable homes could be built with the proceeds of selling off the 4G mobile network.But he's told ITV News that any decision on what to spend that money on in Wales would be up to the Welsh Government.He also said that there are 'issues' with the way Wales is funded but stopped short of committing to reform the funding formula, saying it's the responsibility of George Osborne and Danny Alexander.
