The cost of upgrading two of the navy's frigates has blown out again - this time by $148 million. The project - originally estimated to cost $374-million - will now cost $639 million. Ron Mark is the new Defence Minister. He tells Guyon Espiner the project should have been kicked off a year ago by the last government.
