I have regular discussions with the Welsh Government on a wide range of issues. The Welsh Government requested an extension to their borrowing powers to fund the M4 and I was pleased that the Chancellor was able to announce at Budget a review of the Welsh Government’s capital borrowing powers to consider whether the borrowing cap should be increased by up to £300m to support this vital project.
