Abstract

The purpose of this article is to explore the impact of devolution to Wales on the policy control of the UK core executive. Our case study is the implementation of the additionality principle guiding EU structural funds. Successive UK governments have been reluctant implementers of this principle and have played the ‘gatekeeper’ role in controlling the financial impact of EU funds on domestic public spending. Devolution presents a challenge to central control over this policy. In this context, we seek to refine the ‘gatekeeper’ concept by drawing on the insights of the core executive approach.
