Contract for Army housing might be cancelled due to mould and subzero temperatures

In addition to mould and very cold weather, families have been complaining about the appalling living conditions in government housing that is supplied to the troops.

Numerous members of the military services claim that this winter’s housing conditions, which ranged from damaged boilers to no running water, were “outrageous.”

Defense procurement minister Alex Chalk said that the government “might scrap” the £144 million contract that Pinnacle Group was given by the Ministry of Defense in 2021.

The permanent secretary of the Ministry of Defense was apparently given orders by the minister, who has been in charge since October, to look into the deal internally.

Tobias Ellwood, a Conservative MP, was outspoken in his disapproval after learning about the appalling living circumstances.

The lives of young children have been endangered in recent weeks, according to some horrifying reports, and Mr Kendrick said, “It’s simply not acceptable.”

According to reports, it has been difficult for military families to get in touch with Pinnacle, which provides housing for families in 49,000 military residences around the nation. Some of these families have just heard from the housing company as recently as December 17.

In the House of Commons earlier this month, Mr Chalk raised concerns about the contractors’ possible noncompliance with their commitments and demanded a “rectification plan.”

Ben Wallace, the secretary of defence, tweeted on December 17 that he had “directed people in charge of housing services to boost their game.”
