Ben Wallace – 2020 Comments on Military Accommodation

The text of the comments made by Ben Wallace, the Secretary of State for Defence, on 17 July 2020.

Our Armed Forces work incredibly hard to keep our nation safe, and so it is only right that they have a place they feel proud to call home.

From introducing a generous Forces Help to Buy scheme to piloting a new rented accommodation model, we have made enormous steps in recent years to offer flexible housing for a modern workforce.

This latest investment will benefit thousands of our personnel and their families, providing the standard of living they deserve.
