HC Deb 11 February 1986 vol 91 c445W
40. Mr. Robert Atkins

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he is satisfied with the delivery times and quality of material supplied to Her Majesty's forces.

Mr. Norman Lamont

The Department strives constantly to improve the value for money obtained in procuring material to meet the needs of the Armed Forces. This means that we seek to obtain a better overall package including such factors as delivery times and quality as well as performance and cost.
