HC Deb 29 July 1952 vol 504 c1248
18. Mr. Langford-Holt

asked the Secretary of State for War what provision has been made for the supply of winter clothing and equipment for members of Her Majesty's ground forces serving in Korea during the forthcoming winter.

Mr. Head

Substantial quantities of winter clothing have already been despatched to the base in Japan and arrangements have been made for the supply, mostly from United States sources, of the scale of heaters asked for by the Command.

Mr. Langford-Holt

Is my right hon. Friend quite satisfied that there will be no delays such as occurred on a previous occasion, whereby in the earlier part of the campaign troops were without adequate winter clothing?

Mr. Head

I have been into this matter in considerable detail, and I hope that there will be no trouble at all.
