Chancellor's Autumn Statement means extra £100m for Wales

Welsh ministers are to receive around £100m extra over the next two years as a result of plans unveiled in the chancellor's Autumn Statement.

The cash is despite Whitehall departments facing further cuts of £1bn a year over three years.

The modest rise in the Welsh government budget is because English school and health spending have been protected.

The figures announced by the Treasury are in cash terms and make no allowance for annual rates of inflation.

BBC Wales political editor Nick Servini reports.
