Letter from Walter Boreham to Mr. David Kidney, dated 27 January 1998:




Land Command

Mr. Bayley: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what plans he has to restructure the Army's United Kingdom Land Command ahead of the Strategic Defence Review. [24793]

Dr. Reid: The possible restructuring of Land Command, to which I referred in my reply of 16 January 1998, Official Report, column 349, is one of many issues being considered as part of the Strategic Defence Review; and there are no plans, therefore, to restructure the Command ahead of the Review.

Mr. Bayley: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what are the estimated values of the sites of United Kingdom Land Command's (a) brigade headquarters at Perth and (b) divisional headquarters at Edinburgh. [24794]

Dr. Reid: There are no up-to-date disposal values available for the brigade headquarters site at Perth. On present known factors, the value of the divisional headquarters site at Craigiehall, near Edinburgh is estimated to be up to £750,000 were it to be sold.
