§ Mr. Foster
asked the Secretary of State for Defence what progress has been made in the sale of the former Royal Air Force houses at Middleton St. George, near Darlington.
§ Mr. Hayhoe
In the last three months 30 surplus quarters at Middleton St. George have been handed over to the Property Services Agency for disposal, leaving about 60 which will be handed over as soon as possible. I understand that there are practical difficulties in the way of disposal by the PSA arising mainly from the provision of mains services.
