HC Deb 26 January 1987 vol 109 c128W
Mr. Mudd

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will state, in respect of each of the years 1980, 1981, 1982, 1983, 1984 and 1985 (a) how many sleeping bags surplus to the needs of Her Majesty's armed services were disposed of by tender or public auction and (b) the sums realised from the disposal of these articles in each stated year.

Mr. Archie Hamilton

The Department's records of quantities of surplus stores sold and details of receipts obtained are not in a form that would enable it to provide the information requested without incurring disproportionate expense.
