Mr. Flynn:

Mr. Speaker, I could not describe in detail this program which has been going on for two years. However, I may say we have received full co-operation from the industry. As I said earlier, the results of the research program to date have been highly encouraging, although we cannot draw any definite conclusions as yet.

Hon. Jacques Flynn (Minister of Mines and Technical Surveys):

Mr. Speaker, on Thursday last the Leader of the Opposition asked whether I could confirm a statement reported to have been made the other day in Elliot Lake by the chief of research for my department, Dr. John Convey, to the effect that in two years the department's research into non-nuclear uses of uranium could approach a state at which sufficient uranium could be needed to keep all mines at Elliot Lake in production.

My answer is as follows. On April 5, 1962 Dr. John Convey, director of the mines branch, was guest speaker at the annual banquet of the chamber of commerce in Elliot Lake, at which time he discussed the research work of the mines branch in the development of non-nuclear uses of uranium. As my hon. friend possibly knows, this research program began in 1959 in co-operation with the Eldorado Mining and Refining Company Limited. During the past year, 1961, the Canadian uranium producing companies have contributed toward the support of the program.

In reporting on the results of this experimental work on the use of uranium as an alloying element in ferrous materials, Dr. Convey mentioned that several of the fields of study had shown promising possible uses. He suggested that the program should be more vigorously pursued by both government and industry. Such a vigorously pursued co-ordinated program, he intimated, might possibly provide results within two years which could prove of real assistance to the Canadian uranium industry. From there to state that sufficient uranium could be needed within two years "to keep all mines at Elliot Lake in production" is pure speculation; and I am informed that no such specific statement was made by Dr. Convey.

Has the hon. member not assumed that he will not even get back where he is after the election?
