HC Deb 27 February 1992 vol 204 cc557-8W
Sir Nicholas Fairbairn

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what funds his Department has spent on buildings in Scotland in each of the past five years; and if he will list the amount spent on each project.

Mr. Yeo

The figures are as follows:

£ million
1986–87 133.501
1987–88 115.389
1988–89 110.701
1989–90 130.856
1990–91 12.323

The figures for the years 1986–87 to 1989–90 represent expenditure by PSA Scotland. Since 1 April 1988 clients have progressively untied from PSA services and become responsible for reporting expenditure against their own votes. Therefore:

  1. (1) expenditure from 1 April 1988 excludes major schemes for Civil clients.
  2. (2) expenditure in 1990–91 represents that by the Property Holdings directorate of DoE on civil accommodation in Scotland, but excludes expenditure by other civil departments and MOD.

Major construction schemes controlled by PSA headquarters are excluded as expenditure records are not maintained on a location basis. The figures also exclude rental costs.

It is not possible to provide details of the amounts spent on each project.
