Ministry of Defence under fire following new report into accommodation for the military

The National Audit Office has a new report out which finds that:

While 52% of Service families feel their accommodation is in a good condition, 31% are dissatisfied with the condition of their property.

The MoD is currently undertaking a programme to upgrade Service family accommodation. In the last two years it has upgraded some 1,700 properties and will continue upgrading an average of 800 per year. At the current rate of upgrade, it would take some 20 years before all properties reached condition 1 (the highest of four standards)…

the MoD also has 9,170 vacant properties. This is 18% of its housing stock (against a target of 10%), and vacant properties cost an average £4,200 each per year.

You can read the full report here.

  • Should this not be loudly hung round the neck of the Tories and Michael Portillo in particular?
