秋季報表。它對威爾士意味着什麼?

威爾士政府可以期待在兩年內增加12億英鎊,但工黨部長們不太可能說它足以覆蓋通貨膨脹。

那些享受福利和養老金的人可以期待他們明年按通貨膨脹率增加,而國家生活工資將增加9.7%。

但威爾士工黨第一部長馬克-德拉克福德說。"這份秋季聲明給已經在生活費用危機中掙扎的數百萬人帶來了進一步的壓力。

"我們將繼續盡我們所能幫助人們度過這一困難時期--但我們所有人都將在未來幾年為英國政府的錯誤付出代價。"

凍結人們開始繳納收入所得稅的時間點,意味着許多人將隨着工資的增加而繳納更多的稅。

威爾士政府可以自行改變威爾士的稅率,但自從它擁有權力以來,從未改變過。

英國政府在2020/21年的一項調查表明,威爾士接受國家支持的人比任何其他英國國家都多--56%,而整個英國是52%。

英國的資金運作方式意味着,英國國家醫療服務系統和社會護理支出的增加會引發威爾士政府的額外現金。

威爾士政府也可以將其用於國民保健服務和社會護理,以及其他任何它想做的事情。


The Welsh government can expect £1.2bn extra over two years, but Labour ministers are unlikely to say its enough to cover inflation.

Those on benefits and pensions can expect them to increase by inflation next year, while the National Living Wage will rise by 9.7%.

But Mark Drakeford, Labour First Minister of Wales, said: "This autumn statement heaps further pressure on millions of people already struggling with the cost of living crisis.

"We will continue to do everything we can to help people through this difficult period - but all of us will pay for the UK government's mistakes for years to come."

The freezing of the point that people start to pay income tax on their income means that many will pay more in tax as their wages rise.

The Welsh government could vary the rates themselves in Wales, but never has since it had the powers .

A UK government survey in 2020/21 suggested that Wales had more people in receipt of state support that any other UK nation - 56% versus 52% for the UK as a whole.

The way funding works in the UK means that rises in spending for the English NHS and social care trigger extra cash for the Welsh government.

It can spend it on the NHS and social care too, and anything else it would like to.
