HC Deb 20 December 2000 vol 360 c187W
Mr. Coaker

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will announce the preferred purchaser for the former Royal Army Medical Corps site on Millbank. [144054]

Dr. Moonie

After detailed consideration of all the bids received, and consultation within Government, we have selected The London Institute as the preferred purchaser for the site.

We believe that this decision provides an opportunity to establish a major arts educational institution alongside an art gallery of international standing. This will allow a synergy to develop which will benefit the creative industries as well as having other educational advantages.
