STFC received a 13.6% increase over three years. Much of that is for depreciation and similar accounting items, technically called non-cash. The increase in money available to spend ("near cash") is 8%, equal to inflation over three years. Much of this is not for carrying out science, for example £27M to close the synchrotron at Daresbury. That is why STFC says that there is a shortfall against the cost of continuing the current level of science of £80M. This is equivalent to the flat-cash scenario in STFC's Comprehensive Spending Review submission to the Government (DIUS).
