MoD housing

08 Jan 2007 - LP

The BBC reported last week of the poor state of military housing. A number of pictures of homes and barracks with mildew, broken pipes and cracked walls have appreared in the news and it is reported that servicemen are leaving the army due to poor accommodation.

The government accepted the claims but said that it has spent £700m last year for improving the housing. Obviously it has not been enough or the money has not produced any results due to the governmnet's inablity to manage huge sums and its housing stock in the most efficient way. Soldiers carrying out risky missions all over the globe and their families should not endure dire living conditions at home; they face huge challenges in their work and should have a comfortable place to return to. As the government itself is unable to provide that, it should leave the management to businesses.
