Hon. Sinclair Stevens (York-Peel):
Mr. Speaker, my supplementary question is also for the Minister of National Defence. I would like him to answer the question that I put. Would he indicate to the House whether the Government has definitively committed to a 3 per cent real growth expenditure increase not only for this fiscal year, but for the fiscal years 1986 and 1987? In short, can he assure the House that the Government has agreed to fund fully its commitment to NATO and our defence commitments generally at a 3 per cent real growth rate for the years to which I have referred?
