§ Mr. Wiggin
asked the Minister of State for Defence what action is being taken to remedy the shortages of B vehicles for the UKLF units of the TAVR.
§ Mr. Blaker
The infantry type units formed in April 1971 have received substantial issues of Land Rovers and minibuses and I expect that the balance will be issued by the end of the year. The procurement of 4-ton trucks has been delayed because of difficulties on the part of the body builders, but the deficiencies should be made good by November.
