Supplies to the Army in Afghanistan

I received a very heart felt email from a constituent this week who had just been told by a mother of one of our troops serving in Afghanistan that her son was emailing her and asking her to send him food, such as dried noodles and boil in the bag rice meals because he is hungry a lot of the time, as are his colleagues. Apparently, there is also a shortage of toothpaste and toiletries for males and females.

I thought the whole business of supplies had been sorted out and "our boys and girls on the front line were getting everything they needed." Will write to Dr Liam Fox and find out what is happening as there has always been a niggling doubt concerning what troops should be getting and what they actually receive.
