Right Hon. L. S. Laurent (Prime Minister):
Mr. Speaker, as the hon. gentleman has suggested, I will take this as notice. However, I can say immediately that the government will do everything possible to further the research that is now being carried out in connection with this power plant that is being established here in Canada. If we can ascertain data that will support the optimistic view that power can be produced from that energy at, as the hon. gentleman has suggested, about half of what it costs to produce power from steam otherwise, it will be a very happy development and will certainly stimulate the progress of the industrial development that is taking place
in Canada and make it easier to have it more widespread throughout the country.
