WAQ75890 (e) Tabled on 12/02/2018

Was the Welsh Treasury official who gave advice on the balance sheet classification issue regarding the Circuit of Wales on 20 June 2017 aware that 100 per cent of the construction risk was held by the private sector at the time the advice was given?

Welsh Treasury officials who provided advice on classification were aware of the relevant details of the proposal at the time of providing that advice. Whether the guarantee only commenced after the construction was complete would not have made a difference to the assessment of classification risk.
