Cash rise for Tees.
Provisional figures giving the amount of money the councils will receive for the year 2004-2005 have been announced.
But they have now been revised - with Stockton getting an extra pounds 1m - bringing its settlement to pounds 147m.
Middlesbrough also gets a rise of pounds 608,000. A spokesman for the council said: "We will examine what this means to the budget as a whole."
MP for Stockton South Dari Taylor welcomed the news, saying the extra million meant pounds 38 per person in the borough.
When the first figures were announced Middlesbrough was unhappy with its settlement saying a council tax rise would be on the cards.
The council will now look again at its figures.
