Barnett Squeezed? Options for a Funding Floor after Tax Devolution

Reports & Briefings

This is the second in a series of reports by researchers from Cardiff University’s Wales Governance Centre and the Institute for Fiscal Studies on the 2016-17 Fiscal Framework Negotiations for Wales. A previous report outlined options for adjusting the Welsh block grant after tax devolution, demonstrating that hundreds of millions of pounds are at stake for the Welsh budget.
