Armed Forces: Housing

Volume 470: debated on Thursday 10 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will break down by married accommodation location the married service personnel based at (a) Woolwich, (b) Wellington Barracks, (c) Hounslow and (d) Windsor. (177560)

The information is not held in the format requested.

Staff working in London are entitled to be housed within 90 minutes travel time (using public transport) of their permanent duty station. Therefore there is no direct linkage between the married accommodation at each of the sites and the basing of service personnel at those sites. However, the numbers of service family accommodation at each of the requested locations is as follows:

Number

Woolwich

260

Wellington Barracks

33

Hounslow

117

Windsor

454

Personnel living at these locations may work at other London locations, and conversely personnel who are posted there may be housed elsewhere.
