Departmental Buildings

Volume 491: debated on Wednesday 22 April 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what (a) grade II, (b) grade II* and (c) grade I listed buildings have been owned by his Department in each of the last three years. (266859)

Information relating to grade listed buildings within the Ministry of Justice (MOJ) estate is as follows:

MOJ HQ

MOJ HQ has only one listed building, Gwydyr House, which is Grade II* listed. The ownership of Gwydyr House pre-dates April 2006.

Her Majesty’s Prison Service (HMPS)

HMPS have provided a document detailing all listed buildings and monuments they own and their location. The information includes specific details of exactly which part of each building or monument is listed. There are examples of buildings that have several separate listings and are graded differently. This information has been placed in the House Libraries.

Her Majesty’s Courts Service (HMCS)

HMCS have provided a schedule of Ancient Monuments and schedules of Grade I listed buildings, Grade II listed buildings and Grade II* listed buildings. All information provided is of buildings where ownership pre-dates April 2006. This information has been placed in the House Libraries.

Tribunal Service

The Tribunal Service has two listed buildings; 52 Melville Street, Edinburgh which is graded B (the Scottish equivalent to Grade II) and 14 East Parade, Sheffield which is also Grade II listed. Both buildings pre-date April 2006 in terms of ownership.

National Offender Management Service (non-custodial)

NOMS do not hold this information centrally and to obtain would require undertaking an investigation which would incur a disproportionate cost.
