Food Allowance withdrawal?

Yes, True, more or less as stated in the Mail. Basically, at my unit we have quite a few guys on SSSA as there isn't enough room in the mess. Those living less than 3 miles away will lose the allowance entirely as they are now expected to use the Mess for food. This of course means that if they decide to use the mess at weekends for food then they could have a 18 mile trip (3 x 3 mile each way) to eat their three meals. Of course, they aint gonna do it so they they are out of pocket quite severely

and the mess staff know it so that there will be no food wasted. Win, Win, win, unless of course you are a hungry SSSA pad living 3 miles from the mess. What was Marie Antoinette said about cake?

The MoD says: "It is essential that our Service personnel receive all the support they need and an appropriate set of allowances is an important element of that support. All personnel serving where there are not the facilities to provide three meals a day, or they are accommodated more than 3 miles [5km] from their mess, will continue to receive the food and incidental expenditure allowance."
