§ Mr. Alexander Fletcher
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when the lease of the London Centre Civil Service College was first signed; what was the rent at that time; what was the date when the lease expired; if it is to be renewed; what is the estimated amount of the revised rent; and what that would represent as the cost per square foot.
§ Mr. Armstrong
The lease for the London Centre Civil Service College was first signed on 29th September 1969 and it runs until 28th September 1997. Whether it will be renewed or not will be considered in the light of circumstances nearer the date of its expiry. Information about the rent cannot be provided, because to do so would breach a commercial confidence.
