Supporting Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland through the pandemic

The latest official figures show that since the start of the pandemic the UK government has provided Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland with £28 billion of funding, as part of efforts to support the entirety of the Union throughout the pandemic and beyond, recognising that none of us are safe until we are all safe.

  • The Covid-19 pandemic has affected people up and down the country and so an an unprecedented package of support was needed and put in place for the whole UK.

  • That is why since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, the UK government has delivered an additional £14.5 billion for the Scottish Government, £8.6 billion for the Welsh Government, and £5 billion for the Northern Ireland Executive – helping to protect jobs, livelihoods, businesses and public services.

  • Conservatives are fully committed to supporting the entirety of the UK and helping our nation to build back better as one united nation, levelling up the length and breadth of the country. None or us are safe until we are all safe.,
