Mrs. Bridget Prentice

To ask the Secretary of State for National Heritage if he will list the space footage and cost of office space rented by her Department and its agencies and the number of her Department or agencies' buildings partly, or fully unoccupied together with the square footage of that unoccupied office space and its estimated rental value where available in each of the past five financial years.

Mr. Sproat

My Department and its agencies fully occupy 97,670 sq ft. of office square on which we will pay £520,857 in respect of service charges for the year 1996–97. The rents paid for Government offices are a commercial in confidence matter between the Government and their landlords
