Mr. Chairman, I do not propose-and I am sure the hon. member will not expect me to do so-to discuss production figures. I am not going to enter into that matter at all. I should like to make this one other observation. I do not want to appear reluctant to answer the hon. member, but I am sure he will understand that I am not the Minister of Defence Production.
However, I do not want to give the impression which seems to have been gathered by the hon. member who has just spoken, that the auxiliary squadrons are not now equipped with any aircraft; or that it has been decided
that the auxiliary squadrons will not be equipped with CF-lOO's. There is no decision yet, but we hope to have one in the reasonably near future. We are making very intensive studies for the reasons I gave earlier in the evening.
