HC Deb 20 May 1998 vol 312 c399W
Mr. Burstow

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what estimate he has made of the value of the freehold property of the National Sound Archive building at 29 Exhibition Road; and when the freehold will be disposed of. [40127]

Mr. Fisher

The property at 29 Exhibition Road, currently occupied by the British Library's National Sound Archive (NSA), is held in Trust by the National Sound Archive. It is intended that the property will be sold when the NSA vacates the building later this year. The value of the premises will depend on the property market at the time. The terms of the Trust require that the proceeds from sale of the property should be used to further the NSA's designated activities.
