Jim Murphy MP, Labour’s Shadow Defence Secretary, responding to the NAO report stating that the Ministry of Defence is missing its targets to get supplies to the frontline in Afghanistan, said:

“People will be shocked and concerned that troops on the frontline in Afghanistan are not getting many of the supplies they need when they need them. 

“The country will want to know that no troops are being put at risk and that measures are being put in place to correct faults in the system.

“It is important that the required equipment is made available to our brave Forces.”
