11. Mr. John Hall
asked the Secretary of State for War what progress has been made with the standardisation of vehicles.
§ Mr. Head
Good progress has been made in getting interchangeability of engine parts and components of wheeled combat vehicles and of components and bodies of general service vehicles.
Would my right hon. Friend bear in mind the desirability of speeding up the work of the Committee that is engaged on this task? Is he aware that it will not only help the supply and maintenance service but will also help him in his problem of pruning "the tail"?
