In early discussions, amounts ranged from £20 million to £140 million over the spending review period. The agreed position is £70 million for 2011-12, and subject to parliamentary approval over the spending review period, for this to be sustained for the following three years, giving at least £280 million, which is double the £140 million first mooted over the spending review period.
