Education Questions: UK Government funding to Wales

Last week I met with the National Education Union who were able to provide me with figures that showed the UK Government had cut funding to Wales by £59million since 2015.

The Secretary of State completely fails to understand the impact of his government’s decisions for Wales. His response underpinned my point. The cuts from the UK Government to Wales has resulted in lower per pupil funding.

When I met with the National Education Union they told me that 42% of schools in Delyn have suffered UK Government cuts to per pupil funding since 2015. This has resulted in an annual funding shortfall from 2015/16 – 2018/19 of £704,782.
