Armed Forces: Training

Volume 487: debated on Thursday 5 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what the (a) original and (b) revised estimate of the value of defence estates to be sold under package 1 of the Defence Training Review was. (253094)

The Department is continuing to seek planning consents for the proposed sale of the sites programmed to be sold under the current Metrix deal for Defence Training Review Package 1. Anticipated values rise and fall according to market conditions and are continually reviewed in line with HM Treasury guidance. Surplus sites are planned to be sold at market value from 2012 onwards. I am withholding the anticipated values as disclosure would, or would be likely to, prejudice commercial interests. There is no direct relationship between their disposal and affordability of the Package 1 Project.
