Just wondering what the thoughts are on this little scheme I have just thought up. MPs are (evidently) able to claim a interest free mortage. Should the MoD finance a similar package for the troops? Open to ALL members of the Forces serving and ex-serving, the loans could be capped at Â£400,000 and dependant largely on your wage, and your current pension pot (which it would be secured upon also). During service the load would be interest free, but for those out of the Armed Forces a minimal interest amount would be added on. Maybe 1%, or possibly just inline with the National interest rates. As an added bonus the renting out of the property could either not affect the mortgage or attract some form of interest. If we had enough take up, this could even be a money earner for the MoD, and of course would serve as a massive recruitment and retention bonus.
