To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many four-bedroomed houses at the Colchester Garrison are empty; and how many families are on the waiting list for a four-bedroomed house. [117398]

No families entitled to four bedroom accommodation at Colchester Garrison are being kept waiting. The Defence Housing Executive (DHE) is however aware of 10 families in the Colchester area currently housed according to their entitlement under Tri Service Accommodation Regulations (TSARs) who would like to move to a larger, four-bedroomed property. 51 four-bedroomed Service family houses in the locality are currently empty, but almost all are already allocated to incoming entitled families, or are in the course of modernisation works, or are earmarked for disposal.
