asked the Secretary of State for Defence what is the present total of official (a) married quarters and (b) hirings used by members of the forces; and to what extent he envisages that houses will become surplus in consequence of the run down in the forces as a result of the defence review.

The latest available figures show that the Ministry of Defence has about 97,750 Service married quarters in the United Kingdom, and about 4,700 hirings. It is not yet possible to say precisely how many houses can be given up as a result of the defence review.
