HC Deb 17 July 1968 vol 768 cc211-2W
36. Mr. Moyle

asked the Secretary of State for Defence whether he is satisfied that the Rhine Army Brigade now stationed in this country can be used to reinforce North-West Europe rapidly in an emergency; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Boyden

Yes. The brigade remains equipped and trained for its N.A.T.O. rôle and in an emergency could be returned to the continent in a matter of days.
