asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether the former deputy high commissioner's house in Ottawa has yet been sold; and, if not, how much it is hoped to realise from the sale and how much the house cost.
§ Lord Whitty
The house has not yet been sold. New agents have recently been appointed to take over the marketing of the house. The current asking price is C$1,800,000 (approximately £800,000 at current exchange rates). It was acquired by Her Majesty's Government in 1960 for C$105,000 (approximately £38,500 at 1960 exchange rate).
