Alongside this, responses of individual Ministers to their respective policy committees with the associated consideration of impacts is available at WG Draft Budget 2024-25 web page.

The Strategic Integrated Impact Assessment was undertaken for the Draft Budget; £5.25m was reallocated to apprenticeships in the Final Budget.
