HC Deb 19 September 1950 vol 478 cc198-9W
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.

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.
