Funding row over devolving income tax powers

Attempts to tie increased funding for Wales to the devolution of income tax were blocked by Welsh Liberal Democrat leader Kirsty Williams.

She said it was "unreasonable" for the Conservatives to make top-ups to the Welsh government's budget conditional on a tax-varying powers referendum.

The Wales Act allows the Welsh government some control over income tax, subject to a referendum.

Ms Williams told the BBC's Sunday Politics Wales her party believed in giving the Welsh government income tax-varying powers.
