NAO criticises MoD over army homes

Accommodation still sub-standard says audit watchdog

An audit of the management of the Ministry of
Defence’s
estate has found 40% of homes for service personnel and their
families are still below par with no final date for their upgrade in view.

The National Audit Office said targets
for upgrading accommodation had been exceeded in recent years but problems
remained – particularly the need to find more resources, otherwise ‘a
significant number of service personnel and their families are likely to be
housed in poor quality accommodation for 20 years or more’.

Out of an estate of 46,800 homes, more than 19,000 remain below the ‘standard
one’ benchmark, the report said.
