MoD Substandard Living Accomodation

DIZZY notes that the “MoD slammed by Select Committee”:

The Ministry of Defence has been slammed today in a report from Select Committee on Public Accounts that looks at it’s management of the Defence estate. The report concluded that over 40% of family accomodation and more than half of single living accomodation is substandard.

The report criticised the department’s ability to understand its own requirement saying it “has no effective way of knowing where funding is needed most.” At the same time it appears that in 2006-07 the department cancelled maintenance work to its estate to the value of £13.5 million because of budget cuts, but then proceeded to resurface tennis courts and create sport pitches.

Priorities huh?

Play tennis, not at war…
