Hon. C. M. Drury (Minister of Industry):

In so far as the Department of Defence Production is concerned: 1. Yes.

2. The Belgium government decided not to purchase the CF-5 aircraft.

3. The decision of the Belgian government to acquire Mirage aircraft does not affect in any way any consideration of the possible use of the CF-5 as an operational aircraft by Canadian forces in western Europe.

4. It is understood that the CF-5 would have met their military requirements. Negotiations with the Belgian government indicated that Canada would be unable to meet their offset requirements and therefore no formal offer was made by the Canadian government. The Canadian government is not aware of the details of the offer relative to the Mirage V.
