HC Deb 02 November 1999 vol 337 cc156-7W
Mr. Garnier

To ask the Parliamentary Secretary, Lord Chancellor's Department if he will list the assets sold by the Lord Chancellor's Department and its agencies, and their value, in each year from 1991–92 to 1998–99; and if he will estimate the value of asset sales planned to be made in the years 1999–2000 and 2000–01. [96406]

Jane Kennedy

Details of the proceeds from major asset sales (which are all property) during the periods 1991–92 to 1998–99 in respect of the Department and its agencies are listed in the table together with forecast sales for 1999–2001. The table does not include the sale of magistrates court buildings as these are the responsibility of the local authority as owners, nor does it include the Department's Executive Non Departmental Public Body. Minor and routine other sales are also excluded because they are relatively insignificant.
