HC Deb 12 June 1991 vol 192 cc608-11W
Mr. Steen

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will set out in theOfficial Report the location of each site and its acreage of the unused and underused land held by his Department.

Mr. Archie Hamilton

The MOD register of unused and underused land in England is presently being updated. A list of sites included in the register as at 31 March 1990 is set out below. Many of these sites have now been sold or are in the process of disposal. I will provide the hon. Member with a revised list when available. Similar information for land held in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland is not held centrally and could be provided only at a disproportionate cost.
