§ Mr. Hancock
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what research he has commissioned on the redevelopment of the Defence estate; and when it was published. 
§ Mr. Raynsford
Fuller Peiser Property Consultants were commissioned in 1997 to review the existing policy context of Ministry of Defence disposals in England, and to advise Government on how they should seek to obtain value for money whilst having regard to the wider interest of Government. The Consultants' Report: "Development of the Redundant Defence Estate" has been received, and we are considering it. I expect to publish it shortly.
