§ Dr. Godman
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will list the PFI proposals under consideration in Renfrewshire; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Spellar
There is currently one PFI proposal under consideration in Renfrewshire. My Department selected Bannockburn Homes (a Consortium led by John Mowlem and Co. PLC) as the preferred bidder for the provision of Service Family Accommodation for 164 Army families in Central Scotland. Part of the requirement was to be fulfilled by the construction of 61 houses at Craigton Farm, Bishopton, Renfrewshire but on 21 January 1999 Renfrewshire District Council rejected the planning application. Bannockburn Homes, led by Mowlem and Co. PLC are now considering alternative arrangements.
