July 13, 1955

Mr. MacLean:

The C-119 is filling both functions. Yesterday, I think it was, we were discussing under the army estimates the disbandment of anti-aircraft units in the country. I wonder whether the minister would say a word about any plans that may be in existence with regard to replacing these units with some other formations to take over the function these anti-aircraft units formerly carried out? It seems to me that modern military thinking is to the effect that the air force should have control over all air defence, whether it consists of ground units firing ground to air rockets or whether it is done by aircraft themselves.

Supply-National Defence

In that connection, if the minister can do so would he indicate what plans there are for the experimental use of guided missiles and rockets at Cold Lake and whether the actual personnel who will be doing the testing of any missiles which may be developed will be air force personnel, army personnel or civilian personnel?

Mr. MacLean:

But I was under the impression-I may be wrong-that tests of ground to air missiles would be carried out at a future date; and I was wondering whether any plans are being made along that line.

That includes Neptunes for

O.T.U.'s that support the maritime squadrons?

Mr. MacLean:

Mr. Chairman, would the minister be kind enough to bring the committee up to date on the progress which is

being made in re-equipping the maritime squadrons with Neptune aircraft, and what the target date for complete conversion might be. I presume O.T.U.'s that support those squadrons will also be equipped with Neptunes.

Mr. MacLean:

The program at the present time is for air to air missiles, as I understand it.
