The request was successful.

Dear British Army,

I am urgently looking to understand (prior to 01/11/21):

1. How many unmarried officers with joint custody of children and who are currently residing in surplus quarters have been evicted due to married personnel demand over the past 5 years?

2. What accommodation is a single Major with 50% joint custody of a 5 and 6 year old entitled to during the periods he has custody?

3. Can all jobs in the British Army be considered for Flexible Service at any point?

4. Can you remain on a FS for 10+ years?

5. If you are warned for an operational tour, can you apply for Restricted Separation to mitigate deployment.

6. How many officers were sent on directed postings in the last 5 years?

Yours faithfully,
Alison Hayes
