§ Mr. Straw
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, pursuant to his answer of 11 January,Official Report, column 601, if he will list the total number of residential properties owned by the Metropolitan police and the number, and percentage of the total of these which are empty.
Mr. Charles WardleM
[holding answer 15 January 1993]: The information requested is contained in the table:
the year to 29 September 1991 the sum of £3,100,000 was paid to the privy purse. Duchy accounts for 1992 will be in the Library by mid-February.
Duchy revenues are not subject to income tax. On the tax question I have nothing to add to the statement made by my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister on 26 November 1992, at column 982.
