Armed Forces: Expenditure

Volume 461: debated on Monday 4 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what the budget is for the up keep of the garden at the residence of (a) the General Officer Commanding Northern Ireland and (b) the Commander in Chief Land. (134232)

The main element of expenditure in relation to garden maintenance at official service residences relates to salary costs, and I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave on 15 May 2007, Official Report, column 629W.

Any additional expenditure on garden maintenance is usually very modest and is not identified separately in forward budgets.
