HC Deb 26 February 1952 vol 496 c913
8. Mr. Barnett Janner

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is yet in a position to make any report about the effectiveness of the light-weight bulletproof nylon waistcoats worn by allied infantrymen in Korea.

Mr. Head

No, Sir. We are, however, keeping in close touch with the United States Army authorities on the development and trial of this clothing.

Mr. Janner

Has the Minister any idea when he is likely to be able to give some definite information?

Mr. Head

No, Sir. I could not give an exact reply.

Mr. Mellish

Can the right hon. Gentleman arrange that hon. Members of the Government Front Bench have one of these, particularly after the Budget?
