The report by the National Audit Office report said the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) lacks a clear strategy and comprehensive data to manage its overseas estate effectively.

It added the FCO is taking positive steps to adapt its properties to new global challenges but has not achieved value for money in the management of its estate as a whole.
