HC Deb 09 June 1995 vol 261 cc327-8W
Mr. Mans

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment when the results of the 1993 derelict land survey will be published. [28360]

Mr. Curry

The 1993 derelict land survey has been published today and copies have been placed in the Library. The report shows that the total amount of derelict land in England was 39,600 hectares on 1 April 1993, an overall reduction on 2 per cent. from 1988. Nearly 10,000 hectares of derelict land were reclaimed between 1988 and 1993 of which some 5,000 hectares were reclaimed with funding from my Department.
