Volume 461: debated on Monday 18 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many units of family accommodation at Pirbright barracks are occupied by squatters; and what steps are being taken to ensure such accommodation is not occupied by squatters or vandalized. (141849)

We are aware of two incidents of squatters having taken over empty Service Families Accommodation (SFA) at Pirbright, both of which occurred in the early part of last year. The properties were “outside the wire”.

In both cases, the squatters were removed and steps taken to ensure that the properties are not occupied or vandalised by squatters again.
