Mr. W. J. Henderson (Kingston):

I should like to direct a question to the Minister of National Defence. Because of the fact that doubt is cast as to the future development and production of the CF-105 in an article in this morning's Gazette, would the minister

[Mr. Benidickson.l

acquaint the house with the government's present attitude to the development and production of the CF-105?

Hon. G. R. Pearkes (Minister of National

Defence): Mr. Speaker, some years ago research work was started to develop a supersonic interceptor capable of intercepting manned bombers which might be expected in about five years' time from now. Development work has proceeded on a year to year basis. Last fall the government authorized a further year's development of that aircraft which has now become known as the CF-105.

The future of that aircraft will depend entirely on the nature of the threat. The matter is constantly under examination, and as long as the threat exists development and production of the CF-105 will proceed.
