Nuclear redundancy

I was intrigued by the launch by the Cabinet Office  of its new Government Property Finder tool, to allow citizens to locate and nominate surplus publicly owned assets that could be sold off  to top-up the national treasury. ("Government urges public to find sites it should sell," Guardian, 20 August).

I used the finder ( to search for the Faslane nuclear submarine base in Scotland and the nearby Coulport storage site for the Trident nuclear weapons. Neither could be tracked down  via the finder. The Aldermaston and Burghfield nuclear warhead production factories in Berkshire similarly could not  be located on the site. All should be.
