Government Property: Northern Ireland

Volume 687: debated on Thursday 7 December 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Which pieces of Ministry of Defence estate in Northern Ireland have been disposed of since 1994; whether they will provide details of each property; and, for each piece: (a) how long the Ministry of Defence owned it; (b) from whom and at what cost it was acquired, if acquired since 1970; (c) how the disposal was conducted; (d) who purchased it from the Ministry of Defence; (e) what were the sale prices and selling costs; and (f) where the resulting assets were placed. [HL164]

I am placing the information that is available in the Library of the House. Selling costs are not readily available and will take time to collate. I will write therefore to the noble Lord once this information is finalised. All receipts from the disposal of surplus land come to the defence budget, which is voted on a net basis.
