April 11, 1957

Hon. R. O. Campney (Minister of National Defence):

Mr. Speaker, the plans to provide the three additional fighter squadrons to which my hon. friend has referred have not been abandoned, but they have had to be postponed for some time for a number of reasons, the principal one of which is that we have extended the NATO air training scheme for another year to take care of 360 West German pilots and certain other pilots from some of the smaller countries. The provision of these three fighter squadrons was tied up with the reorganization of the training scheme and there will be some delay, but they are not being abandoned.

Mr. Campney:

No, Mr. Speaker. Every

case is decided on its own merits. I do not feel that we would be justified in spending over $1 million a year to maintain that particular airport for the sole purpose of maintaining a reserve squadron.

Hon. R. O. Campney (Minister of National Defence):

No, Mr. Speaker, a final decision

has not been reached. We have been in negotiation with the Department of Transport and I think the officers of the department have also probably been in touch with the

city of Hamilton to see whether any suitable arrangement can be worked out to maintain the airport.

Mr. Campney:

The continuance of the

squadron is dependent upon such assistance in maintaining the airport as will enable it to be used for a reserve squadron. There is no question but that the squadron will be disbanded if the department has to maintain the whole airport in order to support it. I have stated that a number of times, and that is still our intention.
