HC Deb 03 April 1981 vol 2 cc141-2W
Mr. Banks

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will set out the approximate value of disused property within defence establishments.

Mr. Goodhart

Property which is no longer used and is surplus to long-term requirements is passed to the Property Services Agency for disposal, unless its location makes it inalienable. We have obtained disposal receipts of £44 million in 1979–80 and £62 million in 1980–81 and hope to obtain a total of approximately £260 million in the next five financial years, mainly from surplus married quarters.
