Cornwall is over £150m short

Wondering if anyone else has noticed that £129.5 million over 3 years isn’t the same as the £100 million per year we’ve lost by not being in the EU?

In fact, it’s less than half.

But "Scotland and Wales will receive the same in real terms as they used to under EU funding, and an index of need will be used to allocate to authorities and regions within Scotland and Wales.”

I’m sure the Tories said that in the budget about Cornwall too. Are they trying to quintuple count the 2019 Towns fund again?

Or claim we’ll be ‘running off’ the EU money from 2020 as far ahead as 2025?

Yet again, they’ve come up short for Cornwall. Over £150 million short.
