§ Mr. McNamara
asked the Secretary of State for Defence what is the current North Atlantic Treaty Organisation policy on the provision by member states of logistical resources to its forces in Europe; and when this was last changed.
§ Mr. Stanley
Logistic support within NATO is a national responsibility. The responsibility for coordination rests with the Supreme Allied Commander Europe and with his major subordinate commanders at the appropriate levels. This policy has been in existence since 1952 and remains unchanged.
