§ Mr. Fisher
To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether he will list the number and location of all new buildings or extensions commissioned by his Department in each of the past five years which(a) had contracts worth between £3 million and £5 million and (b) had contracts worth more than £5 million.
§ Mr. Leigh
[holding answer 25 April 1991]: Before 1 April 1988, my Department had no responsibility for funding major new buildings or extensions on the Government's civil estate. My Department has since commissioned one project covered by the question. This was for a new building at Newport in Gwent in the more than £5 million category, started in 1988–89.
