asked Her Majesty's Government:How many allotment sites have been (a) approved for sale and (b) sold; and whether they will name the sites and specify the "new use" where data are available. [HL765]

Further to the Written Answer by my noble friend Lady Hayman on 5 May 1998 (WA 56–57), the Secretary of State has given his consent for the sale of the following statutory allotment sites. The department does not record whether sites are actually sold after consent for sale is given. The proposed new use is not necessarily a factor which is taken into account in deciding whether to grant consent for the sale of allotment land. In some cases, the proposed alternative use may require planning consent.
