§ 93. Mr. W. Hamilton
asked the Secretary of State for War if he is aware of the shortage in the British Army of the Rhine of equipment for conventional war; and what steps he intends to take to deal with the problem.
§ Mr. Profumo:
As my right hon. Friend has already explained to the hon. Member for Woolwich, East (Mr. Mayhew), the British Army of the Rhine, is equipped for both conventional and nuclear war. As a policy, weapons and equipment are always being replaced as part of a continuous process of re-equipment, but there is no general shortage of conventional equipment.
