Living Accommodation

Volume 454: debated on Wednesday 13 December 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many armed forces families in (a) Germany and (b) Cyprus are waiting for family accommodation; and what the (i) average and (ii) longest wait is which has been experienced. (103741)

No Service personnel entitled to Service Families Accommodation (SFA) arecurrently waiting for accommodation in Cyprus or Germany.

The average wait during the last 12 months for the allocation of SFA in Germany was seven days and the longest wait for SFA was 101 days. The 101-day wait resulted from the need to convert two properties into one to meet that particular family’s needs.
