Mr. Bud Bradley (Parliamentary Secretary to Minister of National Defence):

Mr. Speaker, the Hon. Member raises a very serious question, as he is well aware. I would be interested to know if the Hon. Member is now showing that he no longer supports such a move by the Government of Canada to modernize Canada's Armed Forces.
I think the Hon. Member will find that it is Canada's intent to modernize its navy and to provide its navy with the best technical equipment available. I think he will also be aware that the Minister of National Defence stated very recently that the announcement would be made soon.
