§ Mr. Redmond
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will name the three logistic lead-in exercises which preceded Exercise WINTEX 89; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Archie Hamilton
The logistic exercises preceding WINTEX 89 were Proud Amazon 89, Puff Adder 89 and Prompt Actor 89. These command post exercises provided a lead-in to WINTEX 89 and practised those national transition-to-war logistic plans and procedures which the setting of WINTEX 89 precluded.
