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.

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

Mr. Speaker, speaking in the house on July 18 of last year on the defence estimates, I stated that it was my intention with respect to the future to combine the annual report of the department and the defence white paper into a single publication, at a considerable saving in labour and money, and to make it available in the early spring of each year for the previous calendar year.

This new type of report on defence has now been completed for 1956 and was tabled today. Copies in English are now available for members at the distribution office, and the French version will be available shortly.

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 relevancy of my reply

is in the fact that I said in connection with my estimates last spring that if we are going to have to maintain the airport by ourselves the squadron will be disbanded, and these negotiations have been taking place in order to see whether any suitable arrangement can be worked out.
