HC Deb 26 April 1972 vol 835 cc312-3W
Mr. Michael Cocks

asked the Minister of State for Defence what is the anticipated life of 1937 pattern web equipment.

Mr. G. Johnson Smith

We hope to start deploying new light-weight load-carrying equipment to the Regular Army in 1975, and this will by the end of the 1970s replace all patterns of web equipment now in use by the Regular Army, TAVR, UDR, Army sections of the CCF and the Army Cadet Force.
