Armed forces to live in poor housing "for 20 years"

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. The report in today's Guardian (23 March 2007, p19) is much more damning!

    I thought this [edited] paragraph summed up attitudes pretty well...

    It beggars belief... or rather it doesn't!!! :mad:

    Here is a link to the NAO's Press Notice and the Report itself.

    The only thing I might say however is that the NAO Report specifically attacks spending on sports facilities over accomodation. I thought sports facilities were funded under social spending, or something like that, and that the monies on these facilities was ringfenced for that sole purpose? Am I wrong? If I am not wrong, then why should social facilities suffer because of MOD parsimony?

    I stand to be corrected.
     
  2. Surely they mean another 20 years
     
  3. sports facilities come out of money from the RN sports lottery so nothing to do with the housing budget. Not sure about other forces though.
