The United States' role in the procurement of 83 tactical aircraft shelters at four air bases occupied by the United States in England was questioned, particularly whether the United States' interests were properly represented by the British Department of the Environment. Concern was expressed over the selection of an Italian firm to subcontract steel components instead of an American firm.

The Air Force and the British Department of Environment acted according to existing agreements and procurement regulations to protect the United States' interests. The American firm was given an equitable chance to participate as a subcontractor, and there was no evidence of Arab-boycott influence over the subcontractor selection.
