§ 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 558W have progressively untied from PSA services and become responsible for reporting expenditure against their own votes. Therefore:
- (1) expenditure from 1 April 1988 excludes major schemes for Civil clients.
- (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.
