Targets set by Whitehall departments to tackle government empty homes have been announced by housing minister David Curry.

He told the Commons: 'The government is determined to cut the number of empty homes, whether they are owned by local councils, housing associations, private individuals or Whitehall departments. An empty home is a wasted asset.

'Last year nearly 4,000 empty government homes were brought back into use or sold. We are now building on the progress already made by setting targets for 1995/96 that aim to reduce the number of empty properties and the length of time they remain empty.'
