Hon. Brooke Claxton (Minister of National Defence):
Last week the hon. member for Saint John-Albert (Mr. Hazen) asked me this question:
Was the naval tug Glenevis, which was in collision with the Halifax-Dartmouth ferry in Halifax harbour this week, equipped with radar? Is there any shore-based radar available at that port? Was harbour craft No. 303, which was in collision with the North Dartmouth ferry in Halifax on the same day, equipped with radar?
The answer to all three questions is in the negative. So far it has not been considered necessary to install radar in these circumstances.
