star this property answer text <p>Last week, the National Lottery Heritage Fund announced that Old College, Aberystwyth has been awarded almost £10 million of National Lottery money. The National Lottery Heritage Memorial Fund, which allocates Lottery funds to heritage, is a non-departmental public body accountable to parliament through the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport. The mechanism in which funding decisions are made on individual applications and policies are independent of the Government. The National Lottery Heritage Fund is the distributor. This funding commitment builds on the investment of over £400million of National Lottery funding into more than 2,600 heritage projects in Wales.</p><p> </p><p>The investment in Old College will generate around 50 new jobs and encourage graduates to stay in Aberystwyth to establish new businesses, boosting the local economy. The renovation will create gallery spaces, a centre for entrepreneurs and new businesses, artist studios, community rooms and facilities for major events and festivals. This investment will give the building a new lease of life, securing a sustainable future for generations to come. This funding will also be supported by £3 million investment by Welsh Government and £3 million from the European Regional Development Fund through the Tourism Attractor Destination programme.</p>

star this property answer text <p>I discuss a range of issues with my Cabinet colleagues, including EU Exit. The Government is committed to ensuring unfettered access for Northern Ireland goods to the market in Great Britain including Wales. That is why the Government negotiated hard with the European Union to secure explicit wording in the text of the Protocol on Ireland/Northern Ireland that means nothing within it prevents the Government from ensuring unfettered access for goods moving from Northern Ireland to other parts of the UK’s internal market including Wales. As set out in the agreed <em>New Decade, New Approach</em> deal, the Government will legislate to guarantee unfettered access for Northern Ireland’s businesses to the whole of the UK internal market, and ensure that this legislation is in force for 1 January 2021.</p><p> </p><p>The Prime Minister has been clear that, beyond our obligations under international law, there will be no new checks and processes on the movement of goods from Northern Ireland to GB. When discussing the protocol with the EU, the UK will be ambitious on how flexible we can make this system.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The New Decade, New Approach financial agreement reflects the unique circumstances faced by Northern Ireland and supports the incoming Executive to tackle these. The UK Government is committed to supporting all parts of the UK, including delivering increased funding for Wales, and will continue to do so. The 2019 Spending Round provided the biggest day-to-day funding settlement for Wales in a decade with over £17bn in 2020-21 for the Welsh Government, an increase of over £600m. The UK Government’s infrastructure revolution combined with increased funding for areas like the NHS in England will deliver significant increases to the budgets of the Scottish and Welsh Governments.</p><p><strong> </strong></p> more like this

The Government has already secured substantial amounts of investment to improve the infrastructure in Wales, such as the new Intercity Express Trains on Great Western Main Line worth £5.7 billion, up to £58 million for the upgrade of Cardiff Central station and £4 million towards reopening Bow Street station. £69 million has been allocated for the rollout of superfast broadband across Wales and at Autumn Budget we announced a further £200 million for broadband for the hardest to reach areas and Wales will be included in the first phase of this work.</p><p>Nevertheless, there is more that we can do and I will continue to work with the Welsh Government, other UK Government departments to agree how to strengthen the Welsh economy and provide greater connectivity, ensuring that all interests are included when it comes to capital investment in Wales.</p> more like this
