Committee takes evidence on Wales and the Shared Prosperity Fund

6 March 2020

The Welsh Affairs Committee will take evidence on the UK Shared Prosperity Fund with a panel of economic development experts.

The Shared Prosperity Fund is due to replace EU Structural and Investment (ESI) funding at the end of this year. MPs will likely ask about the impact ESI funds have had on the Welsh economy before considering the priorities for the Shared Prosperity Fund, including its design, administration and the level of funding required for Wales.
