HC Deb 26 March 1985 vol 76 c182W
30. Sir John Farr

asked the Secretary of State for Defence to what extent it is his policy for forces personnel serving overseas to be provided whilst on duty with motor vehicles made in the United Kingdom.

Mr. Lee

We buy British vehicles whenever it is sensible, practicable and consistent with our international obligations to do so. We resort to overseas procurement only when this offers substantial advantages of cost, performance and time scale. At present over 95 per cent. of our motor vehicles come from United Kingdom-based suppliers.
