HC Deb 11 February 1998 vol 306 c241W
Mr. Charles Kennedy

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will identify where in the National Asset Register his Department's agricultural holdings are listed. [28737]

Mr. Spellar

Agricultural holdings are not separately listed in the MOD element of the National Asset Register; rather, they are included within the Land and Buildings entries for various Top Level Budgets. This reflects the fact that their main use from a Defence perspective is as training areas. A detailed listing of each individual asset would not have been practical for the purpose of the National Asset Register. For clarity, therefore, the assets have been aggregated to make the information manageable.
