The Autumn Statement is a Missed Opportunity

This year's Autumn Statement was a missed opportunity for the Government to show its support for North Wales.


The Statement, set out  this afternoon, made no commitments to projects in North Wales.


The Chancellor spoke warmly of his backing a deal for North Wales in the Chamber, but the fine detail suggests he is still considering its options – and makes no pledge to back detailed proposals when they are brought forward.


It is disappointing we are still left with warm words but no commitment to our region from the Government. There has been a lot of good work done by people across North Wales building the case for investment and we will continue to press the Government to provide concrete support.
