The nationals are reporting more failures in married quarters heating systems, as well as in barracks. After the Salisbury Plain episode last year, what are things really like for (often cold and poorly serviced) married pads and families ?
In my quarter the boiler is cheap and nasty and badly maintained. Because DHE go for the cheapest quote as usual, all you get when it needs fixing is a monkey with a spanner who can't even do the servicing properly. Last time they sent an elecrical engineer out to fix it - it's oil powered. It would help if DHE could be bothered to check that contractors have actually done the work and to what (if any) standard.
