Military personnel 'to quit' over housing rules


Still Waters

Recommended Posts

Military officers and senior soldiers have said they will quit the Army in droves over new accommodation rules.

Currently, military personnel are entitled to subsidised housing based on their rank, but the Ministry of Defence (MoD) wants to change the rules to focus on families' needs.

The plan could mean many officers will lose entitlement to larger housing.

It is feared the crisis in army recruitment and retention could get worse if the new plans are implemented.

The BBC has obtained testimony from more than 20 officers and their partners - in a sign of growing protest over the new policy.

To me its like saying this large council house family should be allowed to live on the up market street because there are some six bedroom homes there. The higher echelons are all thinking oh God no, keep the grunts away from us, just look how they live and act. We don`t want their kind around here, imagine the negative impact they will have on our own kids.
