Dr GAHA (Denison) .-I do not intend to debate this bill, but I desire the Minister for Post-war Reconstruction (Mr. Dedman) to answer some questions when he makes his speech in reply, if he intends to make one.

Mr Dedman - I do not.

Dr GAHA - I should like to know whether radium is a substance which, in the opinion of the Minister, is or may be used for the production or the use of atomic energy. I presume it would be. Would all heavy metals automatically come within the purview of this bill?

Is the Minister to have power to deal with any discovered methods of releasing energy in any process included in the fision process? Does this legislation apply only to the production of energy for public utilities?Will the Minister reply to those questions ?

Question resolved in the affirmative.
