Mr UREN (REID, NEW SOUTH WALES) - 1 direct a question to the Minister for Defence. Is it a fact that Australian defence experts have suggested to an American technical mission that an atomic reactor foe used to provide power for a radio station in northern Australia? Is it a fact that such a station would not need as much power as would foe generated by an atomic reactor? If such a reactor were built, would it not be economic only if its power could foe used for other purposes, such as to supply nuclear power for Polaris missile-carrying submarines?
