Welsh Finance Minister Jane Hutt has called on the Westminster Government to help give the economy a boost
WELSH Finance Minister Jane Hutt is calling on the UK Government to boost economic growth.
She has joined forces with finance ministers from devolved administrations to make the call.
In a joint letter to Danny Alexander, chief secretary to the Treasury, the finance chiefs have called on the Government to use the forthcoming Budget and Spending Round to push forward a major programme of infrastructure projects and activities to help revive the economy.
Ms Hutt said: "The Welsh Government's focus has continued to be on boosting growth and jobs but the UK Government's cuts have been too deep and too fast and have hampered our efforts to boost economic growth.
