Sup­plies for troops ‘ar­rive late’

Evening Express (Extra Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

AL­MOST two-thirds of the most ur­gent sup­plies sent to Bri­tish troops over­seas ar­rive late, a re­port to­day claimed.

The Na­tional Au­dit Of­fice found only 54% of 130,300 con­sign­ments in 2010 were de­liv­ered on time.

Some 60,000 ar­rived late, mostly be­cause of fail­ures to an­tic­i­pate de­mand or de­lays in ob­tain­ing sup­plies.
