Redwood et al

Good line from David Cornock yesterday on the two hundred million pounds that has disappeared from the Assembly's base budget:

The Assembly Government says it's keen to negotiate with the Treasury to get the money - after all it's twice what John Redwood sent back during his time as Secretary of State in the 1990s.

I might even use that line in the chamber if I get the chance.
Peter Hain talked of a 2.4% increase in Parliament this morning and Andrew Davies talked of just 1.8% in the Assembly.Whatever happened to joined up government? The failure to agree 3 year settlements for local government also shows the trouble they are in. It looks as if it is going to be really tight for local government next year.
