June 29, 1983

Mr. Lamontagne:

This question of modernizing our naval fleet is one of great concern to us. As I said this morning in my speech, this is the first batch of six frigates which will be in operation by the 1990s. That does not mean that over the course of the next few years we will not look again to a second batch, and perhaps a third batch, so that by the year 2000 we will be able to have a fleet which is fully modernized, well equipped and, at the same time, meets all our commitments to NATO. This is the aim of the Government in accordance with the financial resources that we will have at our disposal.

Mr. Lamontagne:

Since the Hon. Member was Minister of National Defence I think there have been many important decisions taken by this Government concerning incorporation and modernization of our equipment in the Armed Forces. These decisions could perhaps have been taken by the former Minister much sooner, if a decision had been taken when he held that position.

Hon. J. Gilles Lamontagne (Minister of National Defence):

Madam Speaker, 1 do not think that delay was due to cash flow. 1 expected the Hon. Member to congratulate not only St. John Shipbuilding and Drydock but also the Government for having taken this important decision.

Hon. J. Gilles Lamontagne (Minister of National Defence):

1. Yes. The Department of National Defence has given a contract for $83,148 to McGill University to carry out metabolic studies on the oxime HI-6 using mice, rats and swine.

2. The oxime Hl-6 is almost the only compound discovered to date that shows promise for use in the treatment of the refractory nerve agent SOMAN as well as other nerve agent poisoning. The compound will be administered via intermuscular injection at doses approximating the therapeutic level. The intent is to prove that when HI-6 is metabolized no undesirable side effects are produced. No toxic or incapacitive effects are anticipated.
