chosen to deploy some of his reserves. health is the big winner with an increase of more than half £1 billion. how much of that will get to the nhs front line does remain to be seen. the details of departmental spending plans will not will be published for another three weeks. all we get today's the naked headlines. mobile government which bears the response ability for delivering the local social services has been crying out for more help. on the face of it today, it looks like their core funding has been cut. but there are a variety of gra nts cut. but there are a variety of grants and other special funding awards that will bring their income up. so they are waiting to see how the picture looks. in fact one senior welsh government source said to me that for them today is the overture before the opera. usually the draft budget revealed today is for one year only in terms of day—to—day spending. that is unusual, but it is because of the brexit uncertainties i'm told. there

6:57 pm
becoming a little devalued. i remember another one that said ‘this house is very old.‘ i thought, we've got a lot of houses that are very old. you've got to be careful, and very selective. just how many of these blue plaques are there? in windsor alone there are 2a, with everyone from the bridge designer charles wallace to the less well—known a local man who decided to make a perfect windsor. around 900 of these plaques exist in britain today. there are three main types of blue plaques, including english heritage. when you hear that charles dickens has about 50... it's ridiculous. i'm on a blue plaque. i was part of a band in the 1960s. don't believe him ?

murky conditions, particularly the hills and coast and the west and rainfor hills and coast and the west and rain for the north west of scotland. i'm hopeful that things will brighten up a little bit in places through the afternoon. if you do see sunshine developing, those temperatures could get up to 19 or 20 degrees. thursday and friday could bring some foggy mornings in the south, but then things are bright enough. further north, rain to come on thursday, brighter skies by friday. you're watching beyond one hundred days. they cued in their hundreds at the conservative party conference, for a speech that was given rock star billing. but not in the main hall, and not for the party leader. this was borisjohnson's day. another opportunity to lambast the prime ministers brexit plan. mrjohnson said theresa may's proposal for leaving the eu is an "outrage" that will reduce britain to being "locked in the tractor beam of brussels". this is the moment to check chequers. the one thing we all know
