Liberal

Mr. Winters:

The question in the form in which it appears on the order paper is quite general, and I doubt whether it would be possible to give the hon. member information that would be of value to him. I have discussed the matter with him, and

I understand that he has agreed to drop the question in this form, on the understanding that if he reframes it in a more specific way, I shall be pleased to try to answer it.

Mr. Stewart (Winnipeg North):

I can

reframe the question now, Mr. Speaker, and the minister may answer it later if he cannot do so immediately. Have employees of the national film board been in the United States recently for the purpose of making films of atomic energy plants or installations?

Mr. Winters:

The answer is that

employees of the film board have been filming work in the United States recently on radioactive isotopes for use in connection with cancer research. The work was done jointly at the request of the Department of National Health and Welfare, in Canada, and, as I understand it, in the United States by the Medical Film Institute, which is an agent for the American Association of Medical Colleges.
