State Property, Downing Street
Mr. Redmond : To ask the Prime Minister (1) who maintains the inventory of state property at Downing Street;
(2) who is the appointed auditor responsible as part of his duties for checking the Downing Street inventory; when the inventory was last checked; and what was the result of that check.
The Prime Minister : There is no single inventory of state property at No. 10. Separate inventories are maintained for differing purposes. Those responsible for maintaining them are also responsible for making periodic checks of the items against inventory. Cabinet Office internal auditors are free to check the inventories at any time they wish.
