The Ministry of Defence has signed a £12million deal which will see Far East workers stitching together a new type of multi-terrain fatigue for UK soldiers.
Junior defence equipment minister Peter Luff admitted: “The new uniforms are being supplied by a UK company which has sub-contracted manufacturing work to a company based in China.”
"The new multi-terrain pattern camouflage personal clothing system combat uniform (PCSCU) is being procured as part of a larger contract supplying a wide range of military clothing.
"The cost of providing PCSCU to UK Armed Forces personnel is approximately £12 million in total.
"The new uniforms are being supplied by a UK company which has sub-contracted manufacturing work to a company based in China."
The revelation came following a written Parliamentary question from shadow foreign minister John Spellar, the Labour MP for Warley.
