The Budget provides the Executive with an opportunity to improve the lives of people in Northern Ireland by allocating resources to high priority areas and where the additional funds will yield the greatest benefit. It also provides an opportunity to assess if spending in certain areas should be continued or whether or not these resources would be of greater benefit to the public if spent elsewhere.
The Northern Ireland Executive has produced a one-year budget for 2016-17. The budget document can be accessed at the link below:
