§ 24. Mr. Bennett
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence to what extent he expects his Department's landholding in the United Kingdom to change in the next 12 months. 
§ Mr. Spellar
The size and shape of the Defence Estate is kept under continual review to ensure that it is no larger than is required for operational purposes. There is an on-going disposal process from which, for example, the MOD budget benefited last year by some £100 million. The Strategic Defence Review now in progress will address the extent of the Defence Estate and I will report on the outcome in due course.
