Hon. Raymond O'Hurley (Minister of Defence Production):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to announce that the republic of Italy will purchase flight simulators of the F-104G Lockheed Starfighter aircraft in Canada. Confirmation has been received from Italy by Canadian Commercial Corporation, together with commitment of funds necessary for the immediate commencement of work.

The value of the Italian order is estimated at approximately $2 million. The simulators will be built by Canadian Aviation Electronics Ltd., Montreal, under contract with the Canadian Commercial Corporation. Technical and administrative supervision of the program will be the responsibility of R.C.A.F. and Department of Defence Production officers who are exercising the same functions in respect of the Canadian, German, Netherlands and Belgium simulator programs which were placed with Canadian Aviation Electronics in the summer of 1960.

Hon. Raymond O'Hurley (Minister of Defence Production):

Mr. Speaker, I think this

matter should be cleared up now. I myself learned of the presence of my assistant secretary at this convention on Saturday through reading the Globe and Mail this morning. If he went there he did so as a private citizen, of his own volition and without my approval or approbation. He worked here on Friday and left to go to Quebec city on Friday night. If he went, he went of his own volition.
