LIB

Joseph-Adéodat Blanchette (Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of National Defence)

Liberal

Mr. Blanchette:

1 and 2. While no final decision has been made, additional ordnance depots are required to meet the needs of the Canadian Army, and consideration has been given to the location of regional depots adjacent to the respective command headquarters. If this is proceeded with, No. 16 regional ordnance depot in Regina would become an area ordnance depot

for the Saskatchewan area on a basis similar to that of other area ordnance depots.

3. If this proposed change is proceeded with, it would now appear unlikely that it would be necessary to transfer any personnel.
