"We have had to pay the cost with regards the pension and repairs because of the type of business GLL are. There is some section 106 money we can use and we will get preferential rates.
"Unfortunately, because of the sensitivities surrounding the negotiations we were unable to divulge too many details but a lot of what was said was simply scaremongering.
