I've been dipping in and out of the budget debate at Stormont today. A vote will take place some time later this evening. Meanwhile both the SDLP and the UUP have proposed amendments to the Finance Minister's figures.
The Ulster Unionist suggested reallocation amounts to an extra £165 million for health in the first year of the budget. It would be interesting to know whether there are any negotiations taking place outside the chamber. Can we consider that the price-tag for UUP votes?
