Volume 494: debated on Thursday 18 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many and what percentage of forces’ accommodation units are in each condition grade in each region in England. (279938)

The following table is the best available breakdown of service families accommodation by location based on the Department’s housing regions, and is correct as at 25 March 2009. This updates information given in my answer of 30 March 2009, Official Report, column 884W, and my written ministerial statement of 17 March 2009, Official Report, columns 43-44WS, and reflects further verification and analysis work including that carried out with the National Audit Office.
