Public Expenditure: Wales

Volume 487: debated on Thursday 29 January 2009

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster which of the schemes outlined in the New Opportunities White Paper, Cm. 7533, will entail a Barnett consequential for Wales in (a) each year to 2010-11 and (b) the period of the next comprehensive spending review; and which have been identified as entailing no such consequential payments. (252770)

I have been asked to reply.

Spending measures in the New Opportunities White Paper are funded from within departmental budgets and therefore there are no new Barnett consequentials beyond those announced in the comprehensive spending review.
