HL Deb 17 November 1997 vol 583 cc62-3WA
Lord Berkeley

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What are the titles, approximate areas and current uses of land holdings in the Stratford East London and King's Cross areas which London and Continental Railway have requested government permission to sell for the benefit of London and Continental Railway.

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions (Baroness Hayman)

London and Continental Railways have not requested permission to sell any railway land in the King's Cross area. LCR have sought and received permission for the release of one site at Stratford. This is Leyton Yard, which is approximately 26 acres in area. It is vacant other than a small temporary occupation by the Highways Agency in relation to adjacent highways works.
