Autumn Statement: Wales gets £227m capital windfall


The Welsh government will get a £227m windfall of capital from Chancellor George Osborne's Autumn Statement.

Business groups said it gave Welsh ministers an opportunity to rebuild infrastructure.

The Welsh government welcomed the money, but said its budget was still facing big cuts that will hinder attempts to help the economy.

The UK government said it was promoting investment, but opponents said its austerity policies were failing.

BBC Wales parliamentary correspondent David Cornock reports.
