HC Deb 01 April 1981 vol 2 c123W
Mr. David Watkins

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what progress has been made in creating a stockpile of supplies for the Eighth Field Force to enable elements of it to operate outside the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation area.

Mr. Goodhart

We have it in mind to establish a logistic stockpile for limited operations outside the NATO area. The composition of the stockpile is still under consideration.
