HC Deb 09 March 1993 vol 220 c543W
27. Mr. Lewis

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will make a statement about progress on market testing in the armed services.

Mr. Aitken

The three services have been set challenging targets and progress is monitored by a sneering group which I chair. A summary of our programme to September 1993 appeared in "The Citizen's Charter—First Report: 1992" (CM 2101. November 1992).
