George James McIlraith (Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Reconstruction and Supply)

Liberal

Mr. McILRAITH:

Although Canada had membership on the combined policy committee which was responsible for the over-all general policy relating to experiment and production of atomic energy, it is impossible to give Canada's share of the total cost because the cost to other nations is not known. Canada, however, has spent a sum of approximately 27 million dollars on research and development in the field of atomic energy.
