A personnel priority
Better management of the MOD's Defence Estate must start with an improvement in accommodation standards, urges the Committee of Public Accounts chairman Edward Leigh MP.
Accommodating the cause
With 10,000 new or refurbished bedspaces under project SLAM and billions of pounds in additional funding, there is no excuse for sub-standard living spaces, says shadow defence minister MP Dr Andrew Murrison.
No defence for the digs
Poor standards of accommodation are affecting both the morale and the retention of those experienced Service personnel who deserve better, says The Royal British Legion's Sue Freeth.
Owain Wilson, of the Association for Project Management, highlights how Project SLAM is improving the quality of single living accommodation and personnel retention throughout the services.
