Budget not a choice between services, Mark Drakeford says

Spending plans worth around £15bn will be announced when the Welsh Government outlines its draft budget later.

For the first time, it will set rates and bands for newly-devolved taxes to be paid from April 2018.

Ministers now have powers over landfill tax and land transaction tax, which has replaced stamp duty in Wales.

Finance Secretary Mark Drakeford said he has tried to prioritise pledges.
