We have been engaged in a series of discussions with the UK Government on the case for:
- reform of Welsh devolved funding
- access to borrowing powers to finance capital investment.
A joint statement setting out the progress that has been made in those discussions was published on 24 October 2012.
The UK Government established the Commission on Devolution in Wales, chaired by Paul Silk (the 'Silk Commission'). The Commission is examining the case for financial and constitutional reform. More information can be found on the Commission's website (external website).
The Commission published its 1st report 'Empowerment and Responsibility: Financial Powers to Strengthen Wales' on 19 November 2012. The UK Government published its full response, 'Devolving financial powers to Wales' (external website), on the 18 November 2013.
