Programme for Government and Draft Budget
In an address to Assembly Members in the Senedd, First Minister Carwyn Jones set out his Programme for Government for the current Assembly term.
The Programme includes actions Ministers will be taking, how progress will be measured and what outcomes we want to see for the people of Wales. It is a programme for all of Wales and sets out which organisations will be involved in delivering the programme with the Welsh Government. The Programme for Government will be updated annually and a progress report published every year.
Draft Budget 2012-13
In preparing the Draft Budget for 2012-13 we have aligned our spending plans to deliver the vision for Wales set out in our Programme for Government. Our financial proposals reflect our commitment to protect and improve frontline services, protect the vulnerable and support economic recovery in Wales. Despite the tough financial climate, we have maximised our resources to deliver our priorities. We continue to place equality assessment at the heart of our budget in order to protect the most vulnerable in our communities. The amount of funding allocated to Welsh Government Departments for 2012-13 is £14.7 billion.
