HL Deb 09 January 1995 vol 560 c11WA
Lord Sefton of Garston

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Why they purchased the Vauxhall Cross building for MI.5 instead of buying and adapting County Hall.

Viscount Ullswater

When the Property Services Agency carried out a search for possible new accommodation for the Secret Intelligence Service in 1988–89, County Hall was not considered to be an available option.
