45. Major Lloyd
asked the Minister of Supply whether he is aware that large orders for webbing equipment have been placed, while sales of webbing equipment have recently taken place; and whether it is the policy of His Majesty' s Government to authorise the auction of serviceable webbing equipment in view of the present very high price of replacement.199W
§ Mr. J. Freeman
No webbing equipment which is of use to the Services has been sold. The recent sales were of equipment which was unserviceable.
