“Vital” that consequential funding is delivered to Welsh councils in full

Wednesday, 24 January 2024

Responding to the announcement by the UK Government of additional funding for councils in England, Councillor Anthony Hunt (Torfaen), WLGA Finance Spokesperson said:


“This announcement today of an additional £600m funding for English councils is proof that the local government finance crisis cannot be ignored any longer. We welcome the fact that most of this funding will be targeted at delivering essential social care services to the most vulnerable.”


“It is vital now that the consequential funding allocation arising as a result of today’s announcement is passported in full to Welsh councils to help our hard-hit social care services and to fund our schools.”




The Welsh Local Government Association (WLGA) represents the interests of local government and promotes local democracy in Wales.
