To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will list the location and status of all buildings within his Department located in London and the annual cost of rents, rates and maintenance of each.
I refer my hon. Friend to the answer to his question to the Secretary of State for the Environment on 2 March 1988, at column 584. In the case of the Ministry of Defence, the Department occupies accommodation in 39 properties on the Civil Estate in the Greater London area, ranging from its main HQ building in Whitehall through sites, for example at Stanmore and Chessington, to the archives at Hayes and stationery store at Wandsworth.
There are 98 sites on the Defence Estate in the Greater London area, excluding married quarters, residences and recreation grounds, ranging from service careers information offices to airfields as at RAF Northolt and Army garrisons as at Woolwich.
