HC Deb 30 January 2002 vol 379 c418W
Mr. Bercow

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will list all NHS estate disposals undertaken in(a) 2000–01 and (b) 200–2, specifying the additions to public funds achieved. [15761]

Mr. Hutton

A schedule provides details of the disposals achieved by National Health Service Estates on behalf of my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State in 2000–01 and the total proceeds generated from them in that year has been placed in the Library.

Details of the individual properties sold by NHS trusts are not collected centrally. In 2000–01 NHS trusts received income from the sale of fixed assets of £378 million. While this sum covers all fixed assets, the majority was from the disposal of land and buildings. This information is not yet available for 2001–02.
