Action needed now on service that has failed families for years
. . . the Ministry of Defence and contractor CarillionAmey are "badly letting down service families" by providing them with poor accommodation . . .
Steps must be taken to ensure future contractors are capable of delivering the agreed service at the agreed price . . .
The MoD seriously misjudged CarillionAmey’s capacity to deliver a service which CarillionAmey accepts it was not equipped to deliver.
The issue of service housing and its maintenance is of huge importance and we have invested £660 million in service housing over the last six years.
It took the personal intervention of the defence secretary, Michael Fallon, for CarillionAmey to hire more staff and set out a plan to improve the quality of its subcontractors’ work. CarillionAmey told the MPs it was not yet making a profit from the contract, but anticipated it would do so in the future.
CarillionAmeyhas been successful in the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2016, winning the Silver award in the prestigious annual scheme.
