HC Deb 02 December 1980 vol 995 c75W
14. Sir David Price

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what lessons he has learnt from this year's North Atlantic Treaty Organisation exercises in Germany in respect of the mobility of our reserve forces within the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation area.

Mr. Hayhoe

Crusader 80 has demonstrated our ability to move large numbers of the Territorial Army swiftly and effectively to reinforce BAOR, should the need arise. As I indicated on 28 October, it will take several months before all the lessons of the exercise can be evaluated but undoubtedly valuable lessons have been learnt.
