Wales Bill — Clause 19 — Welsh Ministers to Set Own Capital Expenditure Priorities — 24 Jun 2014 at 17:00

The majority of MPs voted against allowing Welsh Ministers to set their own capital expenditure priorities.

MPs were considering the Wales Bill[1]. The amendment rejected in this vote was:

  • Amendment 8, page 22, line 8, at end insert—
  • ‘(1B) Welsh Ministers may set their own capital expenditure priorities.”

The following explanation of the intent of the amendment was provided:

  • This amendment would ensure that a future Welsh Government can utilise the borrowing capacity in order to invest in infrastructure projects that it deems a priority, and not be constricted or forced to invest in a project that the Treasury deems a priority.

Had it not been rejected the amendment would have added the above text to Clause 19 of the Bill[2], titled Borrowing by the Welsh Ministers.
