The Northern Ireland Budget Bill 2022-23 was introduced in the House of Commons on Thursday 12 January 2023. The Government’s intention is for all the Bill’s Commons stages to be taken on Monday 23 January 2023, subject to a Business of the House motion.

The Bill authorises the use of certain resources for public services in Northern Ireland for the years ending 31 March 2023 and 2024. It seeks Parliamentary approval for particular sums to be issued out of the Consolidated Fund of Northern Ireland for use by Northern Ireland Departments and other public bodies.

A Budget would normally be the responsibility of the devolved Northern Ireland Assembly and Executive. These have not been fully functioning since February 2022, and therefore the Bill sets a Budget for Northern Ireland.

The text of the Bill and its Explanatory Notes are provided at the Bill pages on the UK Parliamentary website.
