Kind of find this expenditure outrageous when the TA is having to cut its MDTs and training weekends to the bone.

I think we need to really make a list of the most stupid, outrageous, and biggest wastes of tax payers money. Mind you, it does look comfy!

Project SLAM (Single Living Accommodation Modernisation) is the tri-service project which is delivering modern SLA for our Armed Forces personnel across Great Britain. The project is being delivered by Defence Estates (DE) in conjunction with Debut Services Ltd (DSL) a consortium led by Bovis Lend Lease and Babcock Support Services Ltd, acting as the Prime Contractor responsible for design, construction and initial 7 year maintenance of the new facilities. This project is a clear example of the DEï¿½s Prime Contracting Initiative producing better value through collaborative working between the construction industry and MOD"
