§ Mr. John Fraser
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how many empty houses are held by the Property Services Agency in the borough of Rushmoor in its own right and under management for the Ministry of Defence.
§ Sir George Young
In the borough of Rushmoor, the Property Services Agency holds under its management 19 Ministry of Defence empty houses; 6 are in the process of transfer to private purchasers; 1 is with an estate agent for sale on the open market, and 12 form part of a larger group of houses offered for sale to the borough. There are none held by PSA in its own right but there are other Government-owned empty houses in the borough for which the Property Services Agency is not responsible.
