    It was announced in the Budget that the Welsh government are to be given an extra 170 million pounds. Will it be ring fenced this time or will the Senedd refuse to spend it in the way expected by the Westminster Government . The last sum of money they received was supposed support a 75% rate reduction in business rates for small businesses , however the Senedd hasn’t spent the money on that . They “took” part of the money and are only supporting a 40% business rate reduction. Time will tell what will happen to this latest tranche of money.

    Chances are they’ll spaff most of it on the Cardiff Metro. Again.

    To put it in perspective.
    MPs have expressed fury as the chancellor announced £242 million of levelling up funding for Canary Wharf in the Budget.

    Liberal Democrat MP Tim Farron sarcastically wrote on X, “brilliant levelling up news for the rural left-behind Northern town of Canary Wharf…”, and Westminster Leader of Plaid Cymru Liz Saville-Roberts said “Westminster’s priorities are clear for all to see”.
