Public Spending Trends in Wales 1999-00 to 2017-18
01 October 2019

This 20-year anniversary is a good moment to reflect on what has happened to public spending in Wales.

Over the two decades of devolution the relative levels of public spending per head in the four nations of the UK have remained consistent – Wales has consistently seen a higher level of per capita spending than England but lower levels than Scotland and Northern Ireland. But if one looks at individual policy areas, some interesting, and perhaps unexpected, variations can be seen in the pattern and relative levels of funding.
