Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - Order ! It is generally recognized that a Minister may answer questions in his own way, but I think it would be more advantageous if some of those answers were put in the form of statements.

Mr BEALE - With great respect, Mr. Deputy Speaker, I thought I was directly answering a question upon the power programme in the United States.

Mr Calwell - The Minister is consuming our time.

Mr BEALE - Then, I conclude by saying that the United States has planned for a large industrial power programme, involving six or seven large power reactors, over the next five years. The British programme will be in operation first, but there is a very big American programme, and I have no doubt that, in the course of a few years after that, there will be many more actual industrial reactors operating in the United States.
