answer text <p>There is a statutory obligation on the Defence Secretary to report annually on progress in implementing the Armed Forces Covenant. The second annual report was published in December 2013 and contains comprehensive updates on the four major areas specified in the Armed Forces Act 2011, namely healthcare, education, housing, and the operation of inquests.</p><p> </p><p>I look forward to significant further progress in the coming year, including supporting Service personnel to buy their first home through the £200 milion Forces Help to Buy scheme, improving patient care by establishing a unified defence primary healthcare service, and allocating £40 million to support charities which assist veterans with housing needs.</p><p> </p><p>The Covenant is not just a matter for the Government; recognising and respecting the specific needs of the Armed Forces community is a duty incumbent on the whole of society. Charities, employers, local authorities and individuals can play their role in providing the support and fair treatment that our Service personnel, veterans and service families so richly deserve.</p><p> </p>

answer text <p>In the UK the majority of water consumed on Ministry of Defence (MOD) sites is supplied by three Aquatrine Public Private Partnership contracts. The water supplied under these contractual arrangements equates to 95% by volume of consumption on UK MOD sites.</p><p>The MOD has reduced water consumption across its estate by 9% since 2010, thus exceeding a self-imposed target to achieve a 7% reduction in estate-wide water consumption and corresponding bills by 2015.</p><p>Work is continuing throughout the MOD estate to embed water use awareness, and achieve further reductions in water consumption. The Defence Infrastructure Organisation is implementing a Water Consumption Reduction programme, which will target 150 high demand sites to identify further water efficiency measures and improve the efficiency of water use.</p> more like this
