Departmental Assets

Volume 501: debated on Wednesday 25 November 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what assets of his Department are planned to be sold in each year from 2009-10 to 2013-14; what the (a) description and (b) book value of each such asset is; what the expected revenue from each such sale is; and if he will make a statement. (300204)

The Department for International Development (DFID) has no plans at present to sell any of its property, whether in the UK or overseas between 2009-10 and 2013-14.

DFID may, however, dispose of assets such as vehicles or equipment as these reach the end of their useful lives. In such cases, disposals will be immaterial (substantially written down against book value) and carried out in line with DFID procedures. We are unable to provide budgeted figures without incurring disproportionate cost, as this information is not held centrally.
