HC Deb 13 July 1995 vol 263 c791W
Mr. Milburn

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence pursuant to his answer of 10 July,Official Report, column 469, on how many occasions his Department has monitored what has since happened to old Ministry of Defence properties; and if he will provide details. [34291]

Mr. Soames

All houses sold at a discount through the sales to service men scheme or under alternative right-to-buy arrangements include a provision for some of the discount to be repaid in the event that they are resold within a specified period. In addition, some form of clawback arrangement may be included if houses are sold in bulk or as part of a larger sale. Although no central record is kept of such sales, my noble Friend, the then Under-Secretary of State for Defence, wrote to the hon. Member for Leeds, Central (Mr. Fatchett) on 8 June listing those completed in the previous 12 months which included a clawback arrangement. A copy of his letter was placed in the Library of the House.
