HC Deb 17 December 1981 vol 15 cc208-9W
Mr. Banks

asked the Secretary of State for Defence how many and which types of property held by his Department have been lying empty for more than three years.

Mr. Wiggin

Apart from land and buildings passed to the Property Services Agency for disposal, there are three Ministry of Defence properties which have been vacant for more than three years. They are an oil fuel depot, an airfield and an air defence bunker site. Other properties are partially vacant. No record is kept of married quarters which have been empty for more than three years. All land and building which are surplus to long term Defence requirements are disposed of as rapidly as possible.
