Covid-19 response dominates Welsh Government Draft Budget 2021–22

Released 08 February 2021

The Senedd’s Finance Committee has published its report on the Welsh Government’s Draft Budget for 2021–22, voicing serious concerns for public services, inequality and the economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.

In holding the Welsh Government to account on its spending, at a time when many businesses are receiving financial support from the Welsh Government, the Finance Committee supports calls for the simplification and consolidation of the financial assistance schemes available.

In addition to the Finance Committee’s scrutiny of the Welsh Government’s Draft Budget, the Senedd’s policy committees have examined all aspects of the budget and made recommendations.
