Defence equipment minister: We have successfully kept our troops supplied

Peter Luff, defence equipment minister, bats away concerns over MoD supply performance:

"This report criticises the excess of stocks held there, but these stocks have successfully mitigated supply chain delays.

"The complexity of supplying a conflict zone should not be underestimated and we have successfully kept our troops supplied, overcoming major challenges like the Icelandic Ash cloud and disruption to overland supply routes in Afghanistan.

"We have recently more than halved the time it takes to deliver the most urgent items from the UK to the frontline."
