To ask the Prime Minister what the (a) notional market rent, (b) estimated capital value and (c) total annual cost of (i) rent, (ii) security, (iii) utilities, (iv) facilities management and (v) general maintenance was for (A) Flat 1 Admiralty House, (B) Flat 2 Admiralty House, (C) Flat 3 Admiralty House, (D) Government House in Pimlico, (E) No. 1 Carlton Gardens, (F) Bute House, (G) the Chancellor of the Exchequer's residence in Downing street and (H) his residence in Downing street in the last year for which figures are available.

The information requested is not held centrally and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost. For the cost of routine maintenance on the flat above 11 Downing street I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave the hon. Member for Lewes (Norman Baker) on 10 March 2006, Official Report, column 1836-37W.
