§ Mr. Willetts
To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security if he will list the assets sold by his Department and their value, item by item, in each year from 1991–92 to 1998–99; and if he will estimate the value of asset sales planned to be made in 1999–2000 and 2000–01. 
§ Mr. Rooker
[holding answer 29 October 1999]: I refer the hon. Member to the written answer the then Minister of State gave the hon. Member for Gordon (Mr. Bruce) on 16 February 1999, Official Report, column 672. During the period 1 April 1991 and 30 November 1997 there were no major asset sales. Details of minor asset sales during this period have not been collected on the grounds of disproportionate cost. There have been no major asset sales since January 1999 and none are planned for the remainder of 1999–2000 or during 2000–01.
