Holding answer received on 25 November 2014

The majority of adaptations to Service Family Accommodation (SFA) properties are carried out for the benefit of family members and dependants. It is not possible to identify separately those carried out for the benefit of injured Service personnel.

In many cases, the MOD aims to move families into SFA properties which have already been adapted where this is appropriate, rather than understanding further adaptations.

The number of adaptations to privately owned houses of personnel injured on operations is shown in the following table:
