HC Deb 13 February 1996 vol 271 c491W
Dr. Lynne Jones

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many empty buildings his Department currently owns; what is the cost of insuring and securing these buildings; how many were designed as residential properties; and what was the total amount spent by his Department on empty property taxes in each of the last five years. [14575]

Mr. Soames

No central record is maintained of the number of buildings which may be empty at any given time and the information could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
