§ Mr. Home Robertson
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what steps will be taken to dispose of or recover to the United Kingdom those wheeled armoured and transport assets no longer required by British forces assigned to the United Nations force in Cyprus.
§ Mr. Archie Hamilton
Consequent to planned reductions in the British contingent to UNFICYP, we will be withdrawing the ferret scout car squadron from UNFICYP, and the requirement for transport and logistic vehicles will also reduce. The long-term future of these vehicles is under consideration and final decisions have not yet been made.
