asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what are the estimated annual costs to his Department of works in the Falkland Islands.

The total estimated cost of works for the Ministry of Defence in the Falklands to date is £309 million for the Mount Pleasant airport complex and £132 million for the Army garrison, the port facility and other works. Now that the major building programme is virtually complete the Property Services Agency's involvement in the Falklands will be mainly concerned with maintenance. The costs will be in the order of £7 million to £8 million per annum, but will vary from year to year in accordance with needs and will all be borne on the Defence Accommodation Services Vote, Class I, Vote 4.
