HC Deb 04 June 1998 vol 313 c307W
Mr. Jack

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will publish the prices received by the Prison Service for each of its properties sold in the Mede, Freckleton, this year to date and in each of the last five years, identifying the house concerned by number and indicating if it was bricked or unbricked. [43870]

Ms Quin

The Prison Service has sold only one property on the Mede estate within the last five years; the property concerned was 6, The Mede. The District Valuer placed a value of £38,000 on the property as at 6 April 1993. It was purchased under the discount sale scheme and the applicant was entitled to 59 per cent. discount; the purchase price therefore was £15,580.

The property was of Cornish type construction or "unbricked".
