Government Auctions

Volume 457: debated on Tuesday 6 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health where her Department publishes information about Government auctions which it arranges or to which it contributes in (a) Blackpool, (b) Lancashire and (c) the north west; and when the next such auction will take place in each area. (117434)

The Department does not make a routine contribution to Government auctions and no timetable of forthcoming events is therefore available. The Department has used auctions to dispose of surplus assets where it was considered that this means of disposal would achieve the best price.
