Thanks to the UUP and the rest of unionists who voted Remain in the Brexit referendum we are having a united Ireland raised again. The poll here puts the figure around 70% for a united Ireland.

Would the Eire government be able to hand out this sort of money in a united Ireland?

Today (23 November 2016) at Autumn Statement, the Chancellor set out announcements which will build an economy that works for everyone, in Northern Ireland, and the whole of the UK.The UK government’s decision to focus on infrastructure spending means that the Northern Ireland Executive’s budget will increase by more than £250 million through to 2020-2021, giving it greater spending power to boost productivity and promote growth in Northern Ireland.

How this increase in funding will be allocated will be decided by Northern Ireland Ministers, and will be set out by the Finance Minister when he presents his budget to the Northern Ireland Assembly next month.

The Autumn Statement also includes a range of measures that will directly benefit Northern Ireland.Fuel duty is frozen for the seventh successive year, which should save the average car driver in Northern Ireland £10 each time they fill their tank.

The National Living Wage is increasing from £7.20 to £7.50.Northern Ireland’s prestigious universities should also benefit from the UK government’s decision to increase funding for research and innovation by £2 billion a year by 2020-21, ensuring that the UK continues to be a world leader in science and technology.

The government is also making further investments in digital infrastructure such as fibre broadband and 5G – vital in ensuring that businesses in Northern Ireland are well placed to take advantage of the opportunities presented by new technologies, and reap the benefits of greater connectivity.

Additionally, the government will meet its manifesto commitment to increase the personal allowance to £12,500. Over the last Parliament, 700,000 individuals in Northern Ireland saw an average gain of £522, due to increase to the personal allowanceNorthern Ireland, like the rest of the UK, will benefit from the decisions set out in today’s Autumn Statement, as the UK Government continues to build an economy that works for all.
