§ Mr. Colvin
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what plans he has for the sale of Amport house.
§ Mr. Soames
We announced, as part of the defence costs study our intention to form a tri-service chaplains' school. A study is at present under way to determine the location of the school, and Amport house is one of the sites under consideration. No decisions have yet been made. If Amport house was not selected as the site for the school, and no alternative defence uses were identified for it, our intention would be to sell it on the open market in the normal way.
