Departmental Assets

Volume 502: debated on Tuesday 8 December 2009

To ask the Solicitor-General what assets of the Law Officers' Departments 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 she will make a statement. (300207)

The Law Officers' Departments hold only minimal freehold assets, and in line with core Government policy actively manage their estates with a view to operational efficiency. Currently there are no plans to sell any assets in the years 2009-14.

The Government have stated their intention to realise £16 billion in asset disposals over the period 2011-14 and will publish further details of opportunities to commercialise business assets in the coming weeks.
