DCHLG Questions

In Housing, Communities and Local Government questions today I pressed the Government on its commitment to ensure Wales receives ‘not a penny less’ under the Shared Prosperity Fund, the successor to EU structural funding.

Speaking virtually, I said: “Wales received £375 million a year under the EU structural funds but this Government’s levelling-up fund is giving Wales only £30 million a year, while the community renewal fund’s pilot projects split £220 million across the four nations. Can the Minister see why my constituents are already sceptical that this Government will fulfil their promise that Wales will receive “not a penny less”?

In response, Luke Hall MP (Minister for Regional Growth and Local Government) said “…funding for the UKSPF will ramp up so that total domestic UK-wide funding will at least match EU receipts, reaching £1.5 billion a year.”

We will continue to scrutinise this Tory government on its promises on this.
