answer text <p>The Ministry of Defence has delivered a 35% reduction in our civilian workforce since 2010, and remains committed to improving its efficiency while delivering the capabilities our Armed Forces need. As part of our new approach to transformation, we are re-examining how to utilise the talents of our entire workforce more effectively. This will have implications for the size and shape of our future workforce, which we will work through in detail. The outcomes of that work will supersede the civilian workforce assumptions made in Strategic Defence and Security Review 2015.</p> more like this

answer text <p>At the present time, 426 Service Family Accommodation (SFA) properties have reported damp and mould issues. This is less than 1% of the overall SFA portfolio, and the continued reduction is being actively managed through robust arrangements.</p><p>Given the number of SFA properties built prior to 1970, around 34,300 homes (70%) still contain low risk asbestos containing materials (ACM). These are suspended in artex ceiling coatings, adhesive to floor tiles and external roof facias etc. Under our duty of care, the Ministry of Defence maintains an asbestos register and monitors closely the condition of ACM to ensure dangers are minimised. Of note, the English housing survey of 2014-2015 reported that 76% of all houses in England which were built before 1980 and approximately 18 million homes potentially contain ACM.</p> more like this
