HL Deb 08 July 2003 vol 651 cc29-30WA
Lord Hardy of Wath

asked Her Majesty's Government:

From which contractors new weapons or equipment, used in the Gulf this year, were obtained. [HL2899]

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Ministry of Defence (Lord Bach)

A large number of contracts for new equipment used in operations in Iraq this year were placed by both the Defence Procurement Agency and the Defence Logistics Organisation. I will write to the noble Lord on this matter once information from those two sources has been collated and place a copy in the Library of the House.
