§ 27. Mr. Ian Bruce
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many staff have been or are planned to be accommodated in new office accommodation. 
§ Mr. Arbuthnot
Detailed information relating to all the new-build office accommodation is not held centrally and could only be provided at disproportionate cost. Four new office accommodation projects in excess of £10 million in value have been approved centrally since 1991 to accommodate some 8,800 staff in total. All of these are part of wider strategies which result in significant savings to the taxpayer. They are the new Procurement Executive headquarters at Abbey Wood near Bristol, an additional office block at Andover for HQ Quarter Master General's staff, a new personnel and training command headquarters at RAF Innsworth and a new logistic command headquarters at RAF Wyton.
