Volume 450: debated on Wednesday 25 October 2006

To ask the honourable Member for Middlesbrough, representing the Church Commissioners how many empty properties are owned by the Church of England; and for how long on average they have been empty. (96368)

The Commissioners are one among thousands of separate legal entities making up the Church of England. Many of these bodies own property and it is not possible to give a single figure covering the whole Church. The Commissioners' property investment portfolio is very well let with few vacancies.
