NDM8009 Sian Gwenllian (Arfon)

To propose that the Senedd:

1. Believes that post-Brexit funding streams are not working for Wales.

2. Regrets that Wales will be £1 billion worse off in un-replaced funding over the next three years.

3. Believes that new arrangements run directly by the UK Government have undermined the Welsh Government’s ability to strategically plan spending for the benefit of Wales and its communities.

4. Calls on the UK Government to restore Welsh democratic oversight over the post-Brexit funding streams by devolving them to the Senedd.

The following amendment was tabled:

Amendment 1 Darren Millar (Clwyd West)

To propose that the Senedd:

1. Recognises the commitment of the UK Government to empower local communities in Wales via the levelling-up agenda and the shared prosperity fund.

2. Welcomes the UK Government’s repeated confirmation that Wales will not lose out on post-EU funding.

3. Calls on the UK Government and the Welsh Government to ensure that lessons are learnt from how EU funds have been administered under the European structural and investment funds schemes so that future investment by both governments make a real difference to the Welsh economy.
