To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, with reference to the Government’s response to the Selous Report, Living in our shoes - Understanding the needs of UK armed forces families, published on 29 March 2021, how his Department plans to incentivise a move away from a fix-on-fail approach to a preventative maintenance philosophy.

The new Future Defence Infrastructure Services (FDIS) contracts will support a move to a more planned and predictive maintenance regime, supported by a forward life-cycle replacement programme. The contracting model, which adopts the industry standard from the Services and Facilities Group of Building Engineering Services Association (SFG20), incentivises service efficiency and quality and introduces Price Per Property arrangements. These are aimed at encouraging suppliers to provide enduring and sustainable solutions which will be less expensive than repeated short-term fixes.
