Hi XXXX, 
 
The Minister's pretty sympathetic, and is open to providing some of the money.  
 
Figures seemed a bit unclear, could you clarify the cost increase?

Has the Ministers considered this submission? It is becoming more urgent as Norfolk 
CC are today having to come public on the cost increase and will say they have sought 
additional funding from the Department.
Happy to discuss.
