Volume 475: debated on Tuesday 29 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health with reference to the Answer of 18 July 2007, Official Report, column 470W, on NHS: land, what progress has been made by his Department in examining how the review of surplus NHS land will apply to the NHS foundation trust sector; and if he will make a statement. (201978)

The review of surplus land resulted in 299 national health service trusts replying to a request for details of their land holdings. About 190 sites were identified with a total area of 260 hectares, or enough for 6,300 new homes.

Of the responding trusts, 10 were foundation trusts. Discussions continue with all trusts to ensure that all surplus land is properly registered with English Partnerships.
